Brief Introduction to
Putuo Fo Cha (Buddha Tea) Green Tea

Monks of Putuo Mountain always believe that tea and Zen have the same taste. Since the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the monks of the PuJi Temple and the other temples in the mountain have been planting and making tea, which is known as the budda tea from Mt. Putuo. In the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The Budda Tea was choosen as a tribute tea. Later, with the rise and fall of Buddhism in the area, tea production was also interrupted from time to time. It resumed since 1979. Now, the Buddha Tea from Mt. PuTuo is also called the Buddha Summit Cloud and Mist Tea.

The Buddha Tea production area includes the Putuo mountain and its neighboring places such as Zhu Jia Jian and Tao Hua Island. The area is subject to the temperate marine climate and enjoys plenty of rainfall and humid air. It has lush woods and fertile soil. The Pu Tuo tea mountain is behind Mt. Foding (Buddha Summit), the summit of Mt.Putuo. It extends for miles from north to west. The tea trees are distributed on the southern slopes and lee side of the flat grounds in the mountain. Such natural conditions give rise to the unique-quality Buddha Tea.

The Buddha Tea from Putuo Shan is a semi-baked and semi-stir-fixation green tea. It is picked once a year in spring after Ching Ming Festival. One bud with one-two tender leaves are picked. The Buddha Tea has tightly curled leaves with a green, moist, and tippy appearance. The tea soup is bright yellowish green with pleasant sweet aroma. It tastes fresh and pure. The brewed tea leaves are soft and bright and cluster into lumps.

Mt. Putuo is located in the southeast of the Zhou Shan Archipelago, ZheJiang Province. It is one of the four Buddha holy lands in China and the well-known site for mother buddha. Mt. Putuo has many historical monuments and tourist attractions, including several hundreds temples, monasteries, and thatched huts. Among the most famous are the Puji temple, Fayu Temples, Huiji Temple.
