In Mandarin, Ti Kuan Yin means 'iron goddess of mercy,' a name derived from local legend. Our Oolong Goddess, or Ti Kuan Yin, is arguably the finest of Chinese oolongs. Competition-grade varieties sell for thousands of dollars a pound, and ours is right on par with the finest on the market. Full-leaf tea in portable, individually wrapped bags: superior taste, maximum convenience.
Oolong Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.
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.

Are the “envelopes” individually wrapped? Like if I wanted to drop samples into my friends’ Christmas stockings?

The envelope says to brew this tea at 180°F for 3 minutes, but the Adagio webpage says to brew at 195°F for 2-3 minutes. Which directions should be followed?
