More About Enshi Yulu:
The origin of Enshi Yulu?
Enshi Yulu originated in the area of Bajiao Township, Enshi City. According to legend, during the Kangxi period, there was a tea merchant in Huanglianxi, Enshi Bajiao. By 1936, on the basis of jade green tea, the pot was changed from frying to steam, which not only made the tea's soup green and the bottom of the leaves green, but also its appearance and color was oily and emerald green, like the color of green jade. Also renamed Yulu. In 1945, it was exported to Japan, and since then, "Enshi Yulu" has become famous in the world.
Where is Enshi?
Enshi, Hubei is China's natural selenium-rich agricultural production area, and is known as "the world's selenium capital". The annual average temperature here is 16.4 °C, the annual rainfall is about 1525 mm, and the clouds and mists are all year round, which is very suitable for the growth of tea trees.
Because the local land naturally contains selenium minerals, the tea produced also contains selenium. According to the analysis of the Tea Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Enshi Yulu dry tea contains 3.47mg/kg of selenium, and tea soup contains 0.01-0.52mg/kg of selenium, so Enshi Yulu is also a treasure in selenium-enriched tea.

Finally, the "three greens" characteristics of Yulu tea, "green in appearance, green in soup, and green at the bottom of leaves" can be presented.
