Tie Luo Han, all but unknown abroad, is the cultivar responsible for one of the four most famous yan cha, the great “rock teas” grown on cliffs in the Wuyi Shan area of Northern Fujian, the Chinese province on the southeastern coast facing Taiwan.
Luo Han is derived from an ancient Buddhist Sanskrit term, “Arahant” which was earlier derived from “Arihan” (those who subdue or attain victory over foes). Tie Luo Han might be fancifully translated “Iron Apostle” or “Iron Warrior Monk” being the Chinese for “arhat” or “bodhisattva,” and “iron” describing the tea’s darkish appearance.
The tea bush was first found in a cave (Gui Dong or Ghost Cave) in Hui Yuan Yan, one of the ninety-nine cliffs of Mount Wu Yi.
