The old monk drank a cup of freshly picked green tea and brought it to Chen Yi. A fragrant fragrance smelt. Chen Yi drank two sips with a smile. The taste returned to sweetness, the fragrance of spleen, and he felt refreshed, tired, and tired. He asked: Where is this tea? The old monk replied: This tea is a native product of our Mount Emei, refined by a unique process. Chen Yi asked: What is the name of this tea? What s the name of the head! ”Chen Yi retorted,” I ma vulgar, vulgar, and slang, I cant stand in the elegant hall. ”After repeated requests from the old monk, Chen Yi said,“ I think this tea looks like bamboo leaves. Qingxiu is pleasing to the eye, it s called Zhuyeqing !” Since then, Emei bamboo leaf green tea with the same name as our fine wine has i ts own name.
