Fun Fact: Big Red Robe tea comes from the legend of a Buddhist monk who became exhausted while traveling to take a life-changing exam. Stopping on a mountain path, he prepared tea from the bushes growing out of the rocks. Refreshed, he completed the journey, received the top test score and a red (scarlet) silk robe. While returning home, he honored the tea plants by covering them with the red silk robe.
