Ingredients: oolong tea Near the tea fields where the Ti Kuan Yin tea is grown, there is a temple dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy (Kuan Yin). Legend has it that a local farmer would stop by the temple regularly to burn incense and sweep out the leaves and debris. Kuan Yin appeared to the farmer in a dream and told him about a cave behind the temple holding something special. Kuan Yin told him to find it, and share it with the other farmers in his village. The farmer followed the instructions and found a tea sprig in the cave which he planted and when it was ready he discovered it made a very flavorful tea. He cut off sprigs from the tea bushes and gave them to neighboring farmers and together they began growing and producing the tea, naming it Ti Kuan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy) as a tribute.
