E‘mei mountain has a long history of tea production, and Baiya white bud tea was listed as a tribute in the Tang Dynasty. Lu You, a poet of the Song Dynasty, once wrote a poem: “the snow bud tea comes from E’mei”. In the Ming Dynasty, the Baishui Temple (now Wannian Temple) in Mount E’mei planted ten thousand tea plants and collected them for tribute. Modern E’mei Zhuyeqing tea is a famous tea created in the 1960s, its name was chosen by Chen Yi. With magnificent mountains and beautiful scenery, at an altitude of 800-1200 meters, Wannian temple, Qingyin Pavilion, Bailong cave and Heishui temple on the mountainside of Mount E’mei are good places for tea plants growing. Tea fields are surrounded by mountains and surrounded by clouds all year round, the green bamboo forest is dense, and the growth of tea tree is very suitable. The shape of E’mei bamboo leaf green tea is flat, both ends are thin, the shape looks like bamboo leaf. The aroma is high and fresh, the soup is clear in color and mellow in taste. The wet tea leaf is light green and even.
E’mei tea has a long history with Buddhism and Taoism. At the end of the Western Han Dynasty, Buddhism was introduced into China. Because long time meditation is easy to make monks tired and sleepy, and tea is the most ideal drink because it has the effects of refreshing, promoting body fluid, relieving thirst and eliminating fatigue. E’mei tea was famous as early as Jin Dynasty. According to the records of E’mei reading: “Mount E’mei has many herbs, especially tea, which is different from the world, a kind of tea is produced at the top of the Jinshui temple. It tastes bitter at the beginning and sweet at the end. ” There is a deep tea culture in the Buddhist culture, and Buddhism provides the philosophy of “Brahman and I are the same 梵我一如” for the tea ceremony, which deepens the ideological connotation of the tea ceremony and makes the tea ceremony more verve. The Taoist thought of “the unity of man and nature 天人合一” is the soul of Chinese tea ceremony. High level tea activities are forgotten by both things and me, just as Zhuangzhou is a butterfly and butterfly is Zhuangzhou.
