Origin of our tea story

In ancient times, in the WUYI region (part of the Guang Xi province, South China), a serious epidemic spread through and decimated the population. The governor of the region, together with his people, prayed to the god, Yahuang to come to their aid.

The Bodhisattva from the southern coast (a divine being and a follower of Buddism) was also affected. He summoned seven fairies from the heavens to help him. The seven fairies prayed for water from above to sprinkle three tea bushes situated on the Great Rock of Jiulong in which, according to Chinese legend, nine dragons lived.

That very same night, all the inhabitants had the same dream : a sick, old lady who, by bathing in this tea infusion, regained her health, youth and jade-smooth skin. Everyone copied her example and all were healed…

Nowadays, bathing in tea has become a very popular custom in China.
