A GIFT FROM THE GODS
One night, a poor farmer named Wei, was vistied in a dream by Iron Goddess Oolong, the Buddhist Goddess of mercy. She told him where to find a special and treasured tea tree shoot. He took the shoot, planted it in his field and nurtured it, then from this tree the finest tea was produced. Named after the Iron Goddess Oolong, the process of making this tea is complex and requires expertise; and was for many years kept secret. Thankfully the art of making this heavenly tea has been passed on for you to enjoy it’s subtle notes of fruit and berry.

China, Fujian Anxi
We source our oolong tea in Fujian Anxi – a county in the southern Fujian province, known to many as the Tea Capital of China. The tea plantations are located in the lush mountains and hills, green and sprawling. As beautiful to look at as they are to harvest tea from. The soil is rich thanks to constant rainfall and a moderate sub-tropical climate, and yields the high-quality tea that Anxi is famed for. The high altitude and cool climate produce sweeter leaves than the hotter lower-lying regions, and the mountainous terrain allows for excellent drainage. There’s a reason we source so much of our tea from this region.
