Tie Guan Yin Impérial is a partially-oxidated oolong from Fujian rolled into pearls. The leaves have been lightly roasted to provide the traditional "fire taste" – a blend of mineral and toasted notes. Its name means "iron goddess of mercy", in reference to the famous legend according to which the goddess Guan Yin appeared to a pious man who took care of her temple and offered him a tea plant boasting exquisite scents.
Its low caffeine content makes it a perfect evening tea.
