Tie Luo Han Oolong Tea

Tie Luo Han Oolong Tea

(rating: 4 out of 5)

Tie Luo Han Wu Yi Oolong Tea, all but unknown abroad, is the cultivar responsible for one of the four most famous yan cha, the great "rock teas" grown on cliffs in the Wuyi Shan area of Northern Fujian. Legend tells that this tea was created by a powerful warrior monk with golden-bronze skin, hence the name Tie Luo Han, which means "Iron Warrior Monk".

Price & Size :

Quantity :  

Other names:
Iron Warrior Monk, Wu Yi Tie Luo Han, Iron Buddha, Iron Apostle,

Full-bodied and supple, with gentle floral notes and the traditional long-lasting finish.

Traditional looking Oolong tea. Dark and slightly curled tea leaves.

Wuyi Shan, Fujian Province

Brewing Guide:
We recommend using purple clay or porcelain tea ware. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water. Fill the teapot 2 - 5 grams (1-5 teaspoons) full with tea leaves for every 225ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 95°c (203°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time for subsequent brewing.


very good oolong, high quality in general, a strong toasty cup with complex taste

As with all of TeaCuppas Wuyi, this is an excellent representation of tie luo han. While its still fairly young, lacking that perfect balance and harmony of flavors found in more mature Wuyi, the roast does not overwhelm the other flavors in the tea and it is very good as it is now. Ive taken to not drinking young Wuyi yancha, but I may have a hard time keeping this one long enough to age. :)

The aroma of this TLH is wonderful...very rich dark chocolately smell. The aftertaste of this tea is wonderful and sweet. I have very much enjoyed this yan cha and I suggest you buy some of it if youre looking down here at the comments wondering if its any good. :)
