Product Description

Details

This semi-fermented Oolong tea, has long been one of China's most popular teas, and has a unique legend attached to it:

 

An old temple once held the statue of Guanyin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Every day a poor farmer would pass by and reflect on the temple's poor condition, so he brought a broom and incense from his home, swept clean and lit the incense twice a month. One night, Guanyin appeared to him in a dream and told him of a cave where treasure awaited. In the cave, the farmer found a single tea shoot. From that shoot, he nurtured a large tea bush, from which he produced the tea that he named, Tieguanyin, Iron Bodhisattva of Compassion.

The calming teaReview by Tea of Compassion
An excellent tea to sip during and after a meal. The tea leaves sustained their musky and sweet flavour after multiple infusions. I particularly enjoyed the second infusion of this tea for its peach-like undertones. (Posted on 2012-09-01)

Flavour Profile Guide

Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.


Tea Strength Ratings

This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.

RATING
           
RATING PROFILE
Light/Delicate Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour
Medium Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup
Medium-Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness
Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well
Very Strong Tea | Murchie's Tea & Coffee              Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness

 

Coffee Ratings

We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.

Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:

Light Roast           More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker
Medium Roast           Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess
Dark Roast           Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal

Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:

Light Body           Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate
Medium Body           Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour
Full Body           Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers
