Iron Goddess of Mercy celebrates the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin (or Ti Kuan Yin) who, according to legend, appeared to a poor farmer in a dream. She told him about a cave behind a rundown temple where treasure awaited. In the cave the farmer found a single tea shoot which he planted in his field. He nurtured it into a large bush from which the finest tea was produced.

Our beautiful curled Ti Kuan Yin leaf from Fujian Province produces lovely, fragrant, amber liquor. Tender, peachy notes intermingle with nutty overtones. Medium oxidation.
