Fresh From Origin

Anxi County is often synonymous with Tie Guan Yin, “Iron Goddess” tea. It is known infamously throughout the world as one of China’s top 10 teas. Ma Liu Mi or ‘Monkey King’ Oolong belongs to the zhengchao style of Tie Guan Yin, with a satisfying brisk and smooth flavor.

As the legend goes, the cliffs where this tea is cultivated are too steep for people to pick the tea leaves, so monkeys were needed to climb the cliffs and pick the tea for the farmers. Alternatively, it is said that farmers must tie a rope around their waist during harvests, allowing them to scale the cliffs and trees much like monkeys.
