Legend tells of a farmer who noticed a rundown temple in his garden that held a statue of the Goddess of Mercy. Respectfully, he restored the temple and honored it with daily incense. The grateful goddess then appeared to the farmer in a dream and spoke of treasure. Upon waking, the farmer found a new tea shoot that sprouted into one of China's best teas.
Tikuanyin, also known as Iron Buddha or Iron Goddess of Mercy, is considered a green oolong tea – a variation from the oolong tea family. This tea is made when the oolong processing is done in a shorter period of time. The result is a brew that’s more like a green tea in color with vegetal tones, but a mix of nutty fragrances that are present in most oolongs.
