Green God is a type of Oolong tea known as Tie Guan Yin, or "Iron Goddess of Mercy". It has wonderful sweet and earthy characteristics, which combine to make a wonderfully well-rounded and savory cup of tea. This tea is so revered in its homeland of China that it has two legends attached to its origin. The Wei Legend states that a humble farmer named Wei was visited by the Tie Guan Yin in a dream, who told him of a treasure in a cave which he should take as a reward for his selflessness. In that cave he found a tea shoot, which grew into the tea we know today.
