Ti Kuan Yin is one of China's top ten teas. Ti Kuan Yin translates as Iron Goddess of Mercy. The tea itself is as grand as its name. This Oolong tea is beautiful and medium bodied with a fragrant flavor and fruity, sweet aroma.
According to one of the legends, its name came from a Qing Dynasty Emperor who became very ill, and no remedy could cure him. One day an advisor to the court (from Fujian) shared some of his homegrown oolong tea with the Emperor, who was miraculously cured. Upon his recovery, the Emperor named this tea "Ti Kuan Yin", which translates to "Iron Goddess Of Mercy". The Emperor declared that the tightly rolled and well-baked tea leaves resembled iron and had the healing powers of the Buddhist Goddess Of Mercy (Kuan Yin).
In a new study published in the Journal of Medical Investigation, scientists from Japan's University of Tokushima School of Medicine found that people who regularly consumed Wu-Long tea experienced over twice the calorie-burning results of those who drank the same amount of green tea.
The study from scientists at the Suntory Research Center in Osaka, Japan, shows that drinking Wu-Long (Oolong tea) 15 minutes before eating carbohydrates helps "blunt" the rise in insulin you normally get after eating carbohydrates, which is reduces the fattening effects of carbs.

Oolong tea is recommended to be infused multiple times.

The tea has an outstanding fragrant and a floral with fruity mixed notes to it. A sip of the tea not only feels therapeutic but also feels intensely fresh. I have been diabetic for a very long time. I have consciously incorporated the tea in my daily diet as it helps to keep the insulin levels in check. In addition it makes me feel fresh and invigorated the whole day.

by Steve Reno
I like this tea. It is a light Oolong with a deep toasted flavour. I infused it numerous times and it lasted quite well. Each infusion yielded a unique flavour. Quite a smooth beverage with a smooth mellow taste and an enjoyable floral after taste. I would recommend taking it as a light evening tea.
