Satva PuriTea is an organic oolong tea. Oolong is similar to green tea, and is a traditional Chinese tea that has a list of health benefits from gut health to brain function.
This Chinese oolong tea is named after the chinese Iron Goddess of Mercy, who is known to be the female emodiment of Avalokiteśvara Bodhisattva. It is said a poor tea farmer named Wei cleaned the goddess’s run down temple daily and prayed for a way to keep it from falling apart. The goddess visited him in his dream and told him to check a cave for the answer. There he found a tea shoot, and planted it. This became Ti Kuan Yin, our Satva PuriTea, and he was able to sell the tea to help his farm prosper and keep the temple from ruin.
