Legend has it that many centuries ago, a poor temple keeper prayed to his iron statue of Guanyin, Bodhisattva of compassion, for money for repairs. In a dream, she showed him where to find a wild tea that when transplanted to the grounds would grow so popular its sales would forever fund the temple’s upkeep. This Tieguanyin, or Iron Bodhisattva oolong, from the home of origin of Anxi, Fujian, is light-medium roasted to remain fairly green with a delightfully floral aroma.
