Bi Luochun’s story _ ancient wine and tea

Biluochun tea has a history of more than 1,000 years. The earliest folk called it Dongting Tea, also known as Scared Incense. A long time ago, there was a strange aroma on the Mo Lifeng of Dong Dongting. People mistakenly believed that there were fairies and they dared not go up the mountain. One day, a brave and brave girl went uphill to chop firewood. When she walked halfway up the mountain, she smelled a scent, driven by curiosity. She risked and climbed the cliff to the top of the mountain. There were a few green tea trees growing in the cracks, and bursts of fragrance came from the trees.

She picked some leaf buds on the tea tree and went down the mountain. No one knew that the tea had a strong aroma along the way. Back at home, the girl felt tired and thirsty, so she took out the tea leaves, but felt that the room was full of fragrance, and the girl shouted, Scared, scared. She took a bud and drank a glass of water to drink, and she was scented with spleen, full of fragrance and fatigue. The girl was overjoyed and determined to move the baby tea tree home for planting. The next day, she took a hoe, dug out a small tea tree, transplanted it at the foot of the stone mountain in the West Dongting, and cultivated it carefully. A few years later , the tea tree grew strong and luxuriant, and the aroma of the tea tree attracted far and near neighbors. The girl used the picked bud leaves to make tea to entertain everyone. Everyone praised it and asked what tea it was. The girl replied casually : It s scary. Since then, the scary fragrant tea has been gradually introduced and reproduced throughout the Dongting Xishan and Dongshan.

During the Kangxi reign of the Qing Dynasty, the Emperor Kangxi visited here and tasted this soup-colored green tea with curls like snails, which was greatly appreciated.. Since then, this tea has become a tribute tea every year.
