Iron Monk is one of the four famous original rock oolong varieties. Our Tieluohan hails from Min Tuo Yan, Wuyishan. Contrary to what some espouse, this tea benefits from growing on a plateau, terraced plot—allowing for steady, distributed sunshine, instilling the willowy bushes with raw tannin. Between the sun taste and proprietary machine drying, fresh flavor is greatly enhanced. The rocky soil at Min Tuo Yan is well-drained, ideal for healthy water circulation and aeration—allowing the treasured yan yun "rock taste" to shine through. Notes of butterscotch, oak, and maraschino cherries.
