Issuing time:2021-09-17 14:24


Wei Shuo Guanyin Suomeng

According to legend, around 1720, there was an old tea farmer Wei Yin (1703-1775) in Songyan Village (also known as Songlintou Village) in Yaoyang, Anxi. Every morning and evening, I will offer a cup of tea in front of the Guanyin Buddha. It has been like a day for decades, without interruption. One night, he fell asleep and dreamed of walking out of the house carrying a hoe in a hazy dream. He came to a stream beside a stream in the stone. Suddenly found a tea tree in the cracks, with strong branches and lush foliage, attractive fragrance, different from the tea trees he had ever seen... The next morning, he followed the road in his dream last night and found him in the stone pit in Guanyinlun. Between the rocks, I found the tea tree in my dream. Watching carefully, I saw the tea leaves are oval, the leaf flesh is thick, the buds are purple, and the green is dripping: Wei Yin is very happy, dug this tea tree back into the small iron pot at home, and cultivated it carefully. Because this tea was obtained from the dream of Guanyin, it was named "Tie Guanyin".

The birthplace of Tieguanyin

Wang said Qianlong gave his name

According to legend, in the first year of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1736), there was a scholar named Wang Shirang in Yaoyang Nanyan (now Nanyan Village, Xiping Town), Xiping, Anxi. Nanxuan". He often gathers at Nanxuan with relatives and friends.

One day this spring, Wang Shirang found a tea tree in the layered rocks next to Nanxuan, with lush branches and round leaves with red hearts, which were unusual, so he transplanted it into the garden and cultivated it carefully, pressing the branches to propagate. This tea tree becomes a black, fat and strong tea with an extraordinary smell. After brewing, it has a rich aroma and a sweet taste.

The birthplace of Tieguanyin

In the sixth year of Qianlong (1741), Wang Shirang was called to Beijing to pay homage to Fang Wangxi, the minister of ceremonies, and present himself with tea made from this tea tree. Fang Wangxi praised it greatly, and then dedicated it to the inner court. Qianlong was very happy after drinking and summoned Wang Shirang to ask about the history of this tea. Wang Shirang told the truth about the discovery of this tea. Qianlong carefully observed and weighed the tea, and he believed that the tea was black and strong, heavy and iron-like, and it tasted beautifully and shaped like Guanyin, so the royal gift was named "Tieguanyin".
