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.

The calming teaReview by Tea of Compassion
An excellent tea to sip during and after a meal. The tea leaves sustained their musky and sweet flavour after multiple infusions. I particularly enjoyed the second infusion of this tea for its peach-like undertones. (Posted on 2012-09-01)
