Origin & Craft

Emerald Green has been famous since the Guangxu Emperor's reign during the Qing Dynasty. The best are picked in the early Spring before China's Qingming Festival. This is a time when Chinese families honour and celebrate their ancestors.

It is said in local legend that the area where it grows produces such wonderful tea because of thwarted love. A young woman, finding her lover killed by a jealous rival, cried so much she turned to rain and her lover to a tea bush. The clouds now softly cling to the mountains keeping them forever united.
