Floating Scent was my first ‘favourite’ tea; the aroma is unforgettable and the taste is a light citrus with honey and a floral essence. It is the first tea I usually prepare for people that are new to tea ceremony. When I drink it now it is like visiting an old friend, she takes the imagination on flight and soothes the heart.

Guan Yin is the Goddess of compassion and mercy. Legend holds that she was a Buddhist who through great love, grace and sacrifice during her life earned the right to enter Nirvana after her death.  She chose to stay with the people of earth and heal their hearts of the suffering. Guan Yin is found throughout Asia answering the prayers of those who invoke her presence.
