Iron Goddess or "Tie Guan Yin" takes its name from an ancient legend where a lowly farmer tended to the temple of a deity (Guan Yin) and was rewarded with this particular tea plant. It is known for its unique ball-rolled shape that later opens and blooms into large leaves when infused. 

The tea consists of the larger leaves of the tea plant. These leaves are shaken and rolled to induce higher oxidation levels, which helps develop their nuanced flavor profile. This TGY is roasted lightly, a relatively modern take on this tea that highlights its more delicate aromas.
