It is generally believed that the first Tieguanyin appeared in the mid-1700s near a “Guanyin (note)” Rock in Anxi County in southern Fujian (Minnan). Today, fine genuine Minnan productions can be from Xianghua, for the best regards for aroma, those from Gande (găn-dé) for complexity in taste, those from Nanyan (nán-yán) for the pride of being the original ancestry. Because of the popular name, production has spread to many other regions as far as Vietnam and Thailand, but most are only of mass-market quality, with perhaps the exception of some from Mucha in Taiwan.
