About Our Mengding-Ganlu:
Why is it called Mengding Ganlu?
This tea is produced in Mengding Mountain, Sichuan, and is named after its tea soup is as sweet as the refreshing dew.
The origin of Mengding Ganlu?
During the Western Han Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago, Wu Lizhen, the ancestor of tea planting, planted seven tea trees on the Mengding Mountain in Sichuan, which started the history of artificial tea cultivation. Here, the drizzle is hazy all year round, and the annual precipitation is more than 2000mm, which is very suitable for the growth of tea trees. In the folk, Mengshan tea is regarded as a divine thing to cure diseases, so Mengding tea with a long history is also called "fairy tea".
For many tea lovers, tasting this cup of tea soup from the ancient Chinese tea tree means the beginning of the new year of tea.
