He worked conscientiously all days long, but still lived in poverty. Once, having endured a three-day fast, he went to Mount Tai Mu Shan to ask for help from the goddess Taimu. Chen Huan kindled incense, knelt down and began to pray. During the prayer, the goddess Taimu appeared to him and said: “An amazing tree grows on this mountain. It will bring you wealth and abundance. " On the next day, Chen Huan actually found a tea tree in a mountain cave. He planted it near his house and carefully cherished it.
