Iron Magnolias - Magnolia Oolong
Love jasmine, but are just craving something else? Another floral flavor that isn't jasmine or chamomile? Well we'll provide you with something altogether different, but familiar to seasoned floral tea drinkers. With an Iron Goddess of Mercy oolong base rather than a standard green, we infuse it with magnolia blossoms traditionally just like you would jasmine, and it comes out sublime. Perfect floral notes surround the drink with a richer, more noticeable body. This is a must try for any jasmine fans out there.
