This legendary tea was supposedly given to the people of China by Guan Yin. Tie, meaning iron, refers to its reddish brown color that resembles the color of iron. This uniquely fragrant Oolong tea is semi-fermented, between un-fermented white and green teas and the fully fermented black teas.
Flavor: Sweet delicate Earthy notes pass fleetingly over the tongue with a fluffy mouthfeel that lightly lingers
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
