Product Description

This semi-fermented Oolong tea, has long been one of China's most popular teas, and has a unique legend attached to it:


An old temple once held the statue of Guanyin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Every day a poor farmer would pass by and reflect on the temple's poor condition, so he brought a broom and incense from his home, swept clean and lit the incense twice a month. One night, Guanyin appeared to him in a dream and told him of a cave where treasure awaited. In the cave, the farmer found a single tea shoot. From that shoot, he nurtured a large tea bush, from which he produced the tea that he named, Tieguanyin, Iron Bodhisattva of Compassion.
