Pu Ti Cha
To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of sanctification of the Guan Yin’s (Goddess of Mercy) Statue in Nanhai District (Guangdong province), the finest Da Hong Pao tea was selected as an offering to the Goddess. The Da Hong Pao tea leaves were sanctified in the process and are considered to be blessed, offering its drinkers good health, prosperity and happiness. Once sanctified, the Da Hong Pao tea is thereafter known as Pu Ti Cha.
Pu Ti Cha is sold in a box of twelve packs, each containing 9 grams of tea leaves. The total weight is exactly 108 grams. 108 is a sacred number in Buddhism and represents the number of mental conditions or sinful desires that one must overcome in order to reach enlightenment. Also included in the box is a sanctified card showing the picture of the renowned Nanhai’s Guan Yin statue.
