If my understanding is correct (and it may not be) the legend is that an Indian Buddhist Monk Bodhidharma traveled to China and ripped off his eyelids, not the actual historical Buddha.

Incidentally, TiGuanYin is not "Tea of the Godess of Mercy". It is TieGuanYin (鐵觀音) which means "Iron Goddess of Mercy" presumably in reference to the statue described in your story.

I thought Cha was Japanese and Chai was Chinese for tea.
I could be mistaken though.
