A delightful tea- a beatiful dark leaf yields a strong fruity and aromatic cup. Looking for a little wish fulfillment? A cup of Bamboo Temple might be just the thing you need. This fabulous black tea gets its name from the famous Shizhusi (Stone Bamboo) temple on Shizhu Mountain in China's Fujian province. Mountain legend maintains that overnight visitors who stay in the Jiuxian (Nine Immortals) Tower located in the temple will have beautiful dreams and wake not only feeling completely energized but also finding that all his or her wishes have been miraculously fulfilled. (We admit Shizhu Mountain summits at 534 meters above sea level so it may be the lack of oxygen that causes temple visitors to feel this way. That said…we prefer the legend.) Now if you are a true tea scholar you may be wondering why a tea that is in fact grown and produced in Yunnan province would be named after a temple in Fujian province. Good question.
