Description

Tie Luo Han (铁罗汉), that is Iron Arhat (meaning “one who is worthy”, or “perfected person”; in buddhism it refers to people far advanced along the path of Enlightenment) is a type of rocktea (岩茶, yancha) from the Wuyi mountains. It has an outstanding, complex flavour which combines the repeatedly-baked dark wulongs’ usual fiery taste with a round, flowery tone — it’s considerably long tea with a fine sweet, acacia-like aftertaste. Besides, thanks to the hight caffeine content and strong chaqi (茶氣, that is tea nature/energy), this Tie Luo Han is a nice warming and energising tea.

Wuyi teas have a two major idiosyncrasies: First, they are plucked only during Spring, and second, they are baked multiple times: a half year after the harvest time, then once again a year later.

The Wuyi Mountains is situated in Fujian Province, China. With it’s more than a thousand-year-old history of teacultivation, and approximate 200 different subgenera of the teaplant, Camelia sinensis, the area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain’s vulcanic nature reappears in the character of the tea: fiery, vitalizing ambiance and strong chaqi.
