Why is it called three and two?

Wuyi rock tea is loved by many tea lovers because of its unique taste. Later, it is divided into core production areas, Zhengyan (meaning the core region) production areas, Banyan (meaning half core region) production areas and other areas according to climate and environment. Jian (Huiyuan pit, Niulan pit, Daoshui pit, Liuxiang stream, Wuyuan stream) has a superior geographical environment and is the most core and most famous production area. It is precisely because the raw materials of tea trees come from "three pits and two streams", hence the name "three and two".

The annual output of rock tea in the core production area is limited, and the production process is even more refined, and it is very precious. It can be said to be a rare tea.
