Angel's Comment:

This En Shi Yu Lu is the only steamed green tea in TeaVivre.

En Shi Yu Lu is one of the steamed green tea's representatives. It is not the same as regular green tea that has been Sha Qing by stir-frying; it is a green tea that has been steamed to Sha Qing. Steaming can preserve more chlorophyll, protein, amino acids, and aromatic components in tea leaves, resulting in greener dry tea, tea liquid, and wet leaves than other teas, as well as a mellower flavor.

 

TeaVivre's En Shi Yu Lu has its typical bean and chestnut aroma, as well as a touch of orchid fragrance. The taste is refreshing, mellow, and rich with multiple layers of flavor. Friends who enjoy green tea should try this steamed green tea.

Tea Bush

Longjing #43, comes from Qunti variety through the systematic selection breeding by Tea Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences. In 1987, it was identified as National Improved Variety by Chinese Tea Improved Variety Examination and Approval Committee, numbered “GSCT 37”. It is flat and smooth with light green color. At the same time, it retains the Longjing’s good quality, sufficient bean flavor with some chestnut aroma. In addition, the spring tea of this tea bush has 3.7% amino acids and 18.5% tea polyphenols, which is very suitable for making flat-shape green tea.

History

According to legend, during the Kangxi period of the Qing Dynasty, there was a tea merchant in Enshi. He built his own tea stove and made tea himself. Because the shape of the tea leaves he made is round and straight, and the color is as green as jade, it is named "Yu Lv (Green Jade)”.

In 1936, Mr Yang, the tea manager of the Minsheng Company of Hubei Province, changed the pan-fried Sha Qing to steamed Sha Qingbased on this tea. The finished tea not only has the green tea liquid, but also emerald green in appearance, so it was renamed "En Shi Yu Lu (jade dew)"

In 1945, En Shi Yu Lu was exported to Japan, and since then it has become famous all over the world.
