Introduction of the Tea Garden

Tea trees sparsely grown in Mount Tiantai organic garden, at a height of 500m above sea level, are vulnerable to strong winds raved through the forest sometimes. So, around the tea garden stand by some taller trees such as pines and firs with exuberant foliage. Those trees planted by tea farmers form a natural defense to hold back the strong wind.

Organic produce and other ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation.
Tips: it holds a strict standard of building an organic tea garden. For example, the land which is planned to apply a qualification of organic tea garden should never use any pesticides in the past 5 to 10 years. In the range of 10 kilometers from the tea garden no factories should exist.

History

The reputation of Shifeng Dragon Well Tea is closely related with Emperor Qianlong. He once visited the south of Yangtze River six times, during which he investigated the quality of tea leaves four times. He enjoyed tasting tea, writing poets and learning to pick tea leaves. However, one day, when he was picking tea buds, the trusted follower reported that his mother was in poor health. Once heard of this news, he was so anxious that he immediately put the handful of tea buds into pocket and traveled day and night to return to the capital. His sudden appearance and greeting really surprised his mother so that she turned into a good mood. She realized that a fragrant aroma was blowing on her face and at once asked what it was. Emperor Qianlong carefully smelled and found that a stream of fragrant aroma came from his pocket. He touched his pocket at will and the handful of tea buds from Hugong Temple, Longjing Village, Hangzhou had been dried and gave out a kind of rich fragrance. Therefore, he ordered attendants to brew it. After drinking three cups, his mother became pleasant and refreshing. For this reason, he entitled the eighteen tea trees before Hugong Temple under Shifeng Mountain as “royal tea tree”.
