Legend : Long ago in Fujian county (southeast coast of china) there was a temple dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy "Guan Yin." The temple housed an iron statue and was not properly maintained. Overtime, the temple's condition worsened, and caught the attention of a poor farmer. Humbly, the farmer started to clean the temple every month.
Many years later, Guan Yin appeared in the farmer's dream one night and instructed him to share a treasure hidden behind the temple. There, the farmer found a young tea leaf and then nurtured it in his farm. He built a successful business selling the tea produced from that leaf and named the tea "Iron Goddess of Mercy."
