Fujian, China

It’s hard to tell what’s more famous – Tie Guan Yin tea or the story surrounding it. Aptly translated as “Iron Goddess of Mercy” in English, the tale of this tea’s origin involves the deity for which it’s named. One legend begins at a rundown temple in Anxi County, home to a statue of Guanyin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. A poor farmer passed this temple on his daily trek to his tea fields, and knew something had to be done about its disheveled state. One day he took action, sweeping the temple clean and lighting the incense as an offering. This became a daily ritual until months later, Guanyin appeared to him in a dream and told him about a hidden treasure. The following day the farmer found a small tea plant, which he planted in his field. He slowly cultivated the plant until it became the finest tea in the region. Grateful for this gift, he named the tea Tie Guan Yin after the goddess

Klärt den Geist am Morgen

Viele Jahre brachten wir unseren Tee aus China direkt mit. Seit Corona nun nicht mehr…. Der Schrank ist voll mit “Teeversuchen”, die “unserem” Tee nahekommen. Jetzt haben wir unseren Ersatz gefunden, der Morgen ist gerettet. Dieser Tee klärt den Geist und macht wach, wie schön!
