|Not many people in China have heard of Zhu Ye Qing in the past but it now one of the most popular tea in the country due to TV advertisement and more so because of its exceptional quality. The advertisement appropriately carries the slogan "Ping Chang Xin" which means "Relaxing Heart" as the refreshing and soothing aroma of this tea is sure to relax your body and mind.
This tea won the first prize in the 6th "China Tea Cup" Well-Known and High-Quality Tea Appraisal by China Tea Science Society in Jul 2005. The name Zhu Ye Qing was given by the Foreign Minister Chen Yi in 1964 when he first tasted this tea in the Temple of Ten Thousand Years in Mount Emei. It means "Green Bamboo Leaf", a tribute to the tea’s clear liquor and full of life green tea leaves that seemingly dance in the water when infused.
A tea not to be missed.
