Blue Spring Oolong


In rural China, Blue Spring Oolong is commonly referred to as the compassionate oolong tea. The name stems from ancient folklore of Guan Yin the Iron Goddess of Mercy, of which this now famous Ti Kuan Yin style tea was named. Legend has it that drought stricken villagers offered a passing Goat herder some water for himself and his goats, and with this compassionate and kind offering, Guan Yin revealed her true identity and spilled the water into the dry earth and a blue spring appeared miraculously. In honour of their benevolent Bodhisattva, the Fujian villagers began adding blue mallow flowers to represent the crystal blue spring water. It is thought to be a lovely tea to offer to friends.
