£8.96

Chinese legend tells that many centuries ago a simple servant, who spent his days cleaning the temple where the Iron Goddess’ statue stood, was visited by the Goddess in a dream. In his dream he was told of a secret room within the temple where treasure lay. The next day he went to the room, but instead of finding gold and jewels, he found a tea bush. He planted the bush and it brought him tea, he sold the tea and planted more bushes from which he made more tea. He repaired the temple to its original state, decorated it and himself with fine cloth and gave his neighbours tea bushes so they could share in the wealth.

The tea is light and bright with fine yellow liquor much adored by the Chinese. The flavour is light and buttery and posses a unique and slightly addictive character that tends to draw the consumer back for another cup time and time again.
