Tieluohan is a Si Da Ming Cong and a light Wuyi tea. Tie Luo Han, 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.


The name has also been translated to: “Iron Warrior” or “Iron Warrior Monk.” The legend related to the origin of this tea talks about an iron warrior monk who found the first tea bush in a cave and began cultivating this tea. This tea is believed to be the oldest Wuyi Shan Tea dating back to the Song Dynasty sometime around the year 1,000.


the dry Tie Luo Han leaf is the “strip style” or “open leaf” shape.


The taste of the tea should be full-bodied and supple, with gentle floral notes and the traditional long-lasting finish.

Tie Luo Han has a classic "rock tea" taste due to the thin layer of topsoil upon which the tea bushes grow.  The flavor is slightly woodsy, with a smell reminiscent of something like cinnamon.  This is still on the darker roast side of the spectrum for yan chas but lighter than its heavy roast sibling Da Hong Pao.
