The famous Chinese fujian anxi tieguanyin tea The fourth level Tieguanyin tea is 250g

Tie Guanyin Tea, a traditionally famous tea in China, is a kind of Oolong Tea. It is one of top ten famous tea in China. Being native to Xiba Town in Anxi County, Quanzhou City, Fujian Province, it was discovered in 1723-1735. "Tie Guanyin" is both the name of the tea and tea tree. Tie Guanyin Tea is a semi-fermented tea between green tea and black tea. With its unique "Guanyin aroma", Tie Guanyin Tea has an elegant fragrance. After brewing, it has a natural scent of orchid, a mellow taste and a lasting aroma. It has been known for "having remaining fragrance after being brewed for 7 times". Except for the health care functions ordinary tea has, it also possesses the functions of anti-aging, anti-atherosclerosis, preventing and curing diabetes, weight losing and body building, preventing and curing dental caries, clearing heat and downbearing fire, dispelling the effects of smoke and alcohol and so on.

As Tie Guanyin contains relatively high content of amino acid, vitamins, mineral substances, tea polyphenols and alkaloid, as well as multiple nutritional and drug ingredients, it has the function of health preserving. In the 8th year of the Republic of China, the tea trees were introduced to Muzha District from Anxi of Fujian Province and were planted experimentally. The product can be divided into to categories, including "Red-centered Tie Guanyin" and "Green-centered Tie Guanyin". The main producing region is in Wen Mountain. The trees are vertically tensioned with crude and hard branches. As the tea leaves are relatively sparse, the buds are relatively fewer and the leaves are thick, the output is not high. However, the Paochung Tea produced is high-qualitied. The production time for the Paochung Tea is relatively later than that of the Green-centered Oolong Tea. As for the shape of the trees, the treetops and the leaves are elliptical. The leaves are thick, flat and stretched.

Anxi County of Fujian is not only the hometown of world\'s famous tea, but also the birthland of Oolong Tea , which is a nationally famous tea variety. It is also one of the base counties of Oolong Tea exportation in Fujian Province. Anxi has a long history of tea production. Blessed with advantageous natural conditions, the tea leaves produced there are of high quality.

Origin of the name

In late T-ang and early Song Dynasty, an eminent monk, whose (secular surname) was Pei, lived in Anchang Temple by the Shengquan (which means holy spring) Hill in the east of Sima Mountain, Anxi. He processed tea himself and passed the skills on to villagers. Therefore, the villagers called the tea trees as holy trees. In the sixth year of Yuanfeng(1083), Anxi suffered a severe drought. Master Puzu was invited to pray for rain and the rain did come. The villagers urged Master Puzu to stay at Qingshui Hill. He founded a temple and constructed the road there to benefit the villagers. When he heard about the curative effect of the holy trees, he travelled all the way to Shengquan Hill, consulted the villagers on how to plant tea trees and process tea, and transplanted the holy trees. One day, after Master Puzu (Patriarch Qingshui) went to pick the tea leaves from the holy trees after he had taken a bath, put on clean clothes and burned incense, he discovered that a beautiful phoenix was tasting the red buds. Soon after, a muntjac (which was commonly called little yellow deer) came to eat the tea leaves. Upon seeing these scenes, he was very impressed and said "being creation of heaven and earth, these tea trees are truly holy trees". Patriarch Qingshui went back to the temple to process the tea and with the holy spring, he thought: a mythical bird, a mythical beast and a monk enjoying the holy tea together, it is a heavenly holy event. After that, Tiansheng (which means heavenly holy) Tea became an effective prescription that he used to cure the villagers.

Patriarch Qingshui also passed his method of tea plantation and processing to the villagers. At the foot of the South Hill, "Oolong", a retired general who lived by hunting, accidentally invented the techniques of rotating and fermenting tea when he went to pick tea leaves and hunt in the mountain. The Tiansheng Tea made in this way has a richer fragrance and a mellower taste. So, villagers all learned the techniques from him. After that, tea processed with these techniques are called Oolong Tea. Wang Shirang discovered this tea at the foot of South Hill when he returned to his hometown to visit relatives and friends. In the 6th yea of Qianlong\'s reign (1741), Wang Shirang was summoned to go to Beijing and paid an official visit to Ceremonial Master Fang Bao. He brought the tea with him and gave it to Fang Bao as a present. After tasting, Fang Bao felt it was a treasure of tea, so he presented the tea to Emperor Qianlong. Emperor Qianlong called Wang Shirang in and asked him for the source of the tea. Wang elaborated the source of the tea. Emperor Qianlong carefully observed the tea, and found the shape of the tea leave was like the face of Guanyin (a Bodhisattva) and the tea leave was as heavy as iron (or Tie in Chinese), therefore, he named the tea "Tie Guanyin".
