IRON GODDESS OF MERCY
TI KUAN YIN
A lively, medium bodied tea with a fresh floral bouquet, lightly roasted notes & a delightful lingering aftertaste. Produced in Anxi County, Fujian Province, where this tea was originally invented. A mountainous region of China which offers ideal conditions for creating teas of great character due to a combination of rich soil, abundant rainfall, high altitudes (which slows the plant’s growth & thereby creates added flavour complexity) & a long history of skilled tea production.
Named after the Buddhist Goddess of Compassion who is said to have chosen to stay on earth to help others gain enlightenment. According to legend, Kuan Yin appeared to a local farmer in a dream & told him of a treasure hidden in a cave behind a temple that he was to share with others. When he awoke, he found the cave and a tea shoot inside which he planted, shared with his neighbours & which grew into this wonderful tea, which continues to be treasured today for its pleasing taste and healthful properties. Ti Kuan Yin is associated with anti-aging, cardiovascular, metabolism boosting, digestive & slimming benefits.
