Lennon Tool Bar Muzha Tieguanyin Tea (木柵鐵觀音) — or Mucha Iron Goddess Tea — fountain pen ink is a yellow-green color. Muzha is known for both the Taipei Zoo and Tieguanyin Tea. Taking MaoKong Gondola, you can not only get a bird's-eye view of tea plantations but also a vista of Taipei city and Taipei 101.
Muzha Tieguanyin is one of the Pure Tieguanyin Teas, which is made from the leaves of Red Bud Crooked Tail Peach. The production process is complicated and requires high expertise to ball-roll the tea leaves into shape. Sprinkling its dry leaves into a pot sounds like ringing wind chimes. Freshly brewed Tieguanyin Tea has an amber yellow liquor and produces flowery aroma and fruity taste. It has a rich texture and a unique lingering aftertaste called
"Guan Yin Yun," which is translated as "rhyme of the Goddess of Mercy."
Instead of amber, which is the color of Tieguanyin Tea after the making process, "Lennon Tool Bar Taiwan Tea Color" picks up the yellowish-green of the Red Bud Crooked Tail Peach as a reminder of the start of the complex process of tea-making.
The Taiwan Tea Color series (臺灣茶色) is inspired by Taiwan's tea culture. Taiwan is an island of tea, and drinking tea plays an important role in Taiwanese daily life. Escaping from high-paced life and busy schedules, Taiwanese people drink tea to relax. Some may just buy handmade drinks in beverage shops, while some will brew the tea themselves — like practicing a sacred ritual — drinking slowly and carefully.
Lennon Tool Bar was founded in 2014 at Tamsui, Taiwan. Initially they produced
and promoted the art and craft of Indigo Dyeing, a business that flourished a century ago when Taiwan exported a considerable amount of “doroai” — or the raw material of colorants used in Indigo Dyeing — to the Japanese Empire. In recent years, Lennon Tool Bar has launched a series of fountain pen inks in order to popularize colors used in Indigo Dyeing and to present the enduring beauty of traditional workmanship.
