One of the most popular teas in China because of its mix of floral and hints of fruit flavours. This iron Buddha is of the more oxidized variety and has been roasted longer, which adds more complexities and lengthens its aftertaste.
The tea is made at a small farm, which only produces small quality batches. Drinkers should savour the change in taste from hints of honey to fruit sugar.
