Ti Kuan Yin

Centuries ago deep in the heart of Fujian's Anxi County, there was an old rundown temple which held an iron statue of Kuan Yin, the goddess of Mercy. Every day on the walk to and from work, a poor farmer named Wei would pass by and reflect on the temple's worsening condition.

Being poor, Wei did not have the means to repair the temple. Instead, he brought a broom and some incense from his home. He swept the temple clean and lit the incense as an offering to Kuan Yin. For many months, morning and evening he repeated the same tasks.

Understanding Mr. Wei's deep devotion to her temple, Kuan Yin appeared to him in a dream, telling him of a cave behind the temple where treasure awaited. He was to take the treasure and share it with others. In the cave, the farmer found a single tea shoot. He planted it in his field and nurtured it into a large bush, from which the finest tea was produced. He gave cuttings of this rare plant to all his neighbors and began selling the tea under the name Ti Kuan Yin or sometimes spelled Tie Guan Yin, Iron Goddess of Mercy. The Goddess continues to bless the region today, as some of the best Ti Kuan Yin still comes from Fujian.
