Tea Workshop - Ti Kuan Yin: The Iron Goddess of Mercy (Gongfu)

  • Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse 1770 13th Street Boulder, CO 80302 (map)

Ti Kuan Yin, or Iron Goddess of Mercy, is one of the world’s most famous varietals of tea, grown in the Wuyi Mountains of China. Discovered in the early 19th century, it was named after the Chinese Bodhisattva, Guanyin, goddess of compassion. True to its name, each infusion of this tea offers love and sanctuary, with beautifully delicate floral notes in its lightly-oxidized state, and warm, nutty sweetness in higher-oxidized teas. It is because of its broad, complex flavor profile that it is only produced as an oolong tea, a process which uses time and patience to extract the best flavors out of each tea leaf. Come taste a variety of Ti Kuan Yin oolongs as Lily Colonna, our Tea Sommelier, describes the ritual surrounding such a precious tea, in China, as well as around the world.
