Grown on a small family garden in Taiwan, this crisp and nutty oolong tea has a long history. Many years ago, a poor farmer had a dream: the goddess of mercy, Kwan Yin, spoke to him of a great treasure in a nearby cave. When he went there, he found a single tea shoot. He planted it and it grew. So he gave cuttings to his neighbours, and they all prospered by growing this beautiful oolong tea.
This loose leaf comes in a large tea tin specially designed to block out light and air.
Oolong tea from Nantou, Taiwan.
