Story of this tea:
The leaves of bergamot tea are as big as the palm, and it is the tea with the largest leaves in the oolong tea.
According to legend, Buddha's hand tea was born in the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, by the third generation of the abbot (monk) cultivated by the Lion Rock Tea Garden, so the Buddha's hand tea has traditionally been regarded as a representative of "Zen tea culture". After more than 300 years, the preservation of the Buddha's hand mother tea tree is only 89, the annual spring production of only one or two hundred pounds. The tea garden owner is the Yongchun Buddha's hand Intangible cultural heritage inheritor - Zheng Jiaping.
Because the fresh leaves are fat, the tree species is special, "strong, long, thick, healthy" is the most prominent characteristic of Yongchun Buddha's hand (fat appearance, aroma, tea soup, with significant anti-oxidation, gastrointestinal conditioning effect).
