Fresh Packed. Tie Guan Yin.

Loose Leaf, Organic, Tie Guan Yin Oolong.

The name Tie Guan Yin is often translated as "Goddess of Mercy", yet the name is now generally accepted to describe an oolong varietal offering an intense aroma, some fruitiness and a depth of flavor.

Our Tie Guan Yin is medium-oxidized, with primarily brown leaf colors and a light mix of other natural tones. This style offers a well-rounded cup, plenty of flavor with a smooth lingering finish. The leaves are quite large and rolled in the traditional style.

Tie Guan Yin is grown in the AnXi region of Fujian Province, an area famous for the quality of its oolongs. Tea was processed at a co-op that specializes in Tieguanyins. Medium-oxidized oolongs were long the preferred style in China's domestic market before the more recent and widespread popularity of low-oxidized, greener-side oolongs.

  1. Del W.

    I took this bag with me to the office to use with my small teaspoon diffuser. Upon opening the bag, I was greeted with a nice deeply sweet earthy aroma… the leaves were dark brown and tightly coiled. Using the water machine, I filled my mug with ~10oz of water (just enough room below the rim to walk safely back to my desk) and stirred with the diffuser over a couple of minutes.

    The first couple of sips, I tasted a predominantly earthy flavor (not in a bad way – but was a little jarring). I let the cup sit for a few more minutes to cool off… and that was the trick. Once it had sat and cooled for a bit, the flavor really shined. The earthiness remained, but was a bit more subdued… and this allowed a slightly sweet floral flavor to peak out. In fact, this cup remained untouched… no sugar, no cream… just a beautifully balanced tea with a nice grounded flavor.

  2. Katawampas

    I could easily get 3 good steeps from 1 serving of this tea. I heat the water to 205F & steep for 3 minutes. I’ve ordered other tea from this company & they have all been good quality & fresh.

  3. Hunter Warrior

    It is a delicious and delightful tea with a nice aroma. The quality is good and fresh. The price is pretty reasonable as well. It is worth giving it a try. A good Tie Guan Ying tea.

  4. Danny

    This tea is excellent. Great scent, tea leaves, and packaging. Brews great and has a hint of sweetness. Recommended.

  5. AP

    My favorite teas are green, black and chai, but I’m coming around to oolong. I’ve had several high quality oolongs, and this ranks up with them. Good scent, tasty, big leaves in the pyramid tea bag. Easy tear/reseal package, good expiration date, product of Taiwan. Worth a try if you’re into oolong. AP

  6. SC

    Delicious tea! Use a little when brewing as the leaves expand and double in serving size. I would recommend it!

  7. SuLu

    I’m new to oolong tea, and I’ve only started drinking it in the last couple of weeks since running across several brands through the Vine program. I don’t really know anything about it beyond what I have read in the product descriptions, and an online tea tutorial (and I also checked several health organizations, too). This one sounded interesting and I ordered both the tea bags (sachets) for my daughters and granddaughter, as they are always in a hurry, and this 3-ounce loose leaf version for myself as I prefer to use a tea strainer so I can brew an entire pot at a time of the strength I prefer. I like that this doesn’t contain a huge amount of caffeine. SuLu

    You can get this tea in tea bags or as loose leaf tea. Personally I prefer the tea bags because it’s more convenient but the loose leaf is nice because you can control how concentrated you want to make your tea and it’s easier to make a bigger batch (e.g. family size). Typical oolong flavor profile and lovely reddish color when steeped. I really enjoyed this tea a lot.

  9. B. Capossere

    I’d call this a stronger oolong as compared to more subtle, smooth ones. That taste is a little nutty (not roasted) and maybe a bit earthy. Leaves are tight balls and good quality. Opening the bag gives a strong scent, a good sign of freshness. You can get two very good steeping out of it (I did the first at 3 minutes and the second at 5) and a pretty good third steeping. very nice tea.

    Tie Guan Yin (or as it was spelled in past Ti Kwan Yin) is “Iron Goddess of Mercy” and a famous oolong from The tea is fermented partially and baked. Has a fruity overtone different than the grassy taste of green tea or the malty sweet taste of black tea.

  11. Electrosoft

    Using my standard prep (not so quite boiling water, 3g per 8oz, 5 min steep), this produced a very flavorful, warm soothing cup of tea of greatly enjoyed.

  12. M. Lee

    No vegetal notes. Not particularly aromatic—maybe a smokey leather note if you look hard enough. No floral notes. Modestly sweet. This oolong has more of a black tea taste with zero bitterness or astringency. Other than the classic black tea taste, It’s actually quite neutral—but has a delightful mouthfeel. Once you stop looking for the characteristics of oolong and appreciate this tea on its own terms, it’s actually quite delicious. The mouthfeel is especially satisfying. It drenches. Highly recommended.

  13. SwanS8

    Good tea that’s worth a try.

  14. Britney G

    Upon opening the bag, the tea has a fruity but sour and earthy smell. It highly reminds me of the smell and taste of dried sour fruits.
    I steeped the tea and it gave off a slightly creamy and sweet smell with that still very complex aura of earthiness. My tea came out a very light brown, almost yellow color with two teaspoons of tea. I feel like a little sugar really brings out the sweeter side of this tea to make it taste more complete.
    Overall, very enjoyable tea!

    EXCEPTIONAL Tie Guan Yin Iron Goddess Organic Oolong Loose Tea From Taiwan-3oz. Resealable Pouch. This tea is Organic and comes in a resealable 3 ounce pouch. I did a 3 minute steep with 195°F water. Some of the rolled tea prior to steeping is in P.4. After is P.5 – you can discern the whole leaves still a bit tight and ready for a second steep which at 4 minutes was deeper in flavor than the first and equally excellent.

  16. Debbie

    This tastes nice and like the high quality Iron Goddess oolongs that I’ve tried in the past. You can steep the loose leaf tea more than once and it still has a nice taste. I’d highly recommend it. Debbie

  17. Ring0

    This tea has a mild, slightly sweet, and roasty flavor, with just a tiny bit of astringency. The tea leaves start out tightly rolled, which makes it easy to measure the recommended teaspoon – they unroll during the first infusion to dark, almost whole, medium sized leaves. I do a second pressing for about ten minutes (the recommended first pressing is four), and get a very dark but still very mild infusion.

    I have several kinds of tea from this brand, and I have been very pleased with the quality of them.

  18. Michael B

    This Tie Guan Yin Oolong tea from Cushla is soft and elegant but still intensely flavored. It has that “iron bite” that many of this particular Oolong varietal seem to have (perhaps it’s the soil). It also has that unique stone fruit flavor that makes good Oolong teas so delicious. This tea is well-balanced without bitterness: I allowed freshly boiled water to cool for 2-3 minutes to around 185-195 degrees before pouring over a teaspoon of tea in a cup. Steeping for around five minutes gives me the tea strength that I most enjoy. Steep yours to your own taste preference but steeping too long at too high a temperature can invite bitterness. If you’d like to enjoy a good cup of Tie Guan Yin Oolong tea, this one has all of the attributes I love about this tea.

  19. Becky

    I found this Tie Guan Yin Oolong pleasant to drink by itself. I like Chai tea latter in the day and it normally has black tea that does not agree with my sensitive stomach. I mixed this Oolong with Chai Spices and it was perfect for what I wanted, YUM!

  20. Gaby

    This Tie Guan Yin Oolong Loose Leaf Tea is delicious – mellow, bright and tasty. I’d been drinking tea for years but am only just learning to identify what I particularly like. This is medium level for me – it doesn’t need milk or sugar and has a floral brightness.

  21. Chris B

    Overall, I like this Oolong tea. I find it to be in the middle of the spectrum of Oolong flavors. It produces a nice cup or flavorful tea that helps sooth you as it wakes you up on a cold morning. I found the tea to be enjoyable and pleasant. It was robust enough to not put you to sleep, but not so strong as to feel like someone just slapped you in the face. This can be a tea to wake up to in the morning, enjoy in the middle of the day, or relax to in the evening.
