fresh from origin
According to legend, Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy presented this rare tea in reward to a devout farmer who for many years diligently maintained her old, dilapidated temple. "The key for your future," she said, "is just outside this temple." Outside the temple, the farmer found a withered and forlorn straggly bush. After much care, the bush grew rich and full, with thick green leaves, which made a refreshing beverage when mixed with hot water. Thus the magical Ti Kuan Yin tea came into being.
