What is the origin of Tieguanyin(铁观音)?
According to legend, during the Kangxi and Yongzheng years, there was a young man named Wei Chengyin魏承荫. The whole family believed in Guanyin观音. One night in 1723, Chengyin dreamed that Guanyin appeared, and led him to a tea tree in the mountain, saying that this was the best tea, and hoped that he would cultivate it carefully and benefit the people. The next day him woke up, followed his dream and found a strange tree. The tea made from it has an elegant aroma like an orchid and rich flavor, which is comparable to other teas and is well received.Later, a teacher named it Tieguanyin(铁观音) by combining the characteristics of tea frying in an iron pot, color like iron, and heavy like iron, and it has been passed down to this day.
The "Tea-making Law of the Qing Dynasty"《清上明制茶法》 states: "The origin of Oolong tea: the working people of Anxi, Fujian created and invented Oolong tea in the third to thirteen years of Yongzheng in the Qing Dynasty (1725-1735), and it was first introduced to northern Fujian after the Introduced to Taiwan Province." Tie-Guan-Yin was imitated everywhere because of its excellent quality and unique fragrance.
China's Oolong tea has four major producing areas, including southern Fujian, northern Fujian, Guangdong, and Taiwan. Fujian has the longest production history, the largest output and the best quality. It is especially famous for Anxi Tieguanyin and Wuyi rock tea.
