About Zhu Ye Qing
A very recent tea, Zhu Ye Qing was created in the early 1960s by a Monk near the top of the famous buddhist mountain, Emei Shan (UNESCO Cultural Heritage site). The name was derived from its similar shape to a bamboo leaf with both ends pointed; noted by a high government minister at the time. The tea produces a clear light-green brew with very grassy undertones; a truly refreshing tea.
China is the birthplace of tea. It was here that tea was accidentally discovered by Emperor Shen Nung over 5,000 years ago. Ever since its discovery by China, tea was used only as a green tea for centuries. Hence China produces the world's finest green teas.
The tea leaves used for green tea are steamed or pan-dried immediately after picking, arresting bacterial growth and preventing oxidation. Then they are rolled by hand to squeeze out excess moisture and to release flavor enzymes. The leaves are finally fired in large driers and packed. When brewed, then turn a light green color, with a flavor that is sometimes delicate and somewhat tangy.
Green teas are rich in vitamin C. Experts contend that they stimulate the spirit better than any other blend, claiming that it improves their abilities to think and meditate for prolonged periods without fatigue.
