Jiuhua Buddha tea originated in the beautiful Juihua mountain.The place is considered sacred for Buddhist pilgrims because it is home to ancient Buddhist temples. Since there are very few people living in the mountain except monks, there is no industrial pollution and the tea is organic. The tea itself is believed to have become popular during the Qing dynasty (1644-1912).
JiuHua Mountain area is characterized by subtropical monsoon climate, which is a little harsher than that in the coastal areas but much milder than the climate in the western part of the country. The seasonality allows for the production of teas with varied flavor. Anhui province is, in fact, the place where a number of tea varieties originated.
Jiuhua Buddha tea is a green tea. It is derived from Camellia sinensis leaves, which have been dried and heat-treated in a hot roasting pan to stop the process of oxidation and preserve the green color of the leaves.
Jiu Hua Buddha tea has a wonderful leafy aroma and a sweet taste.The exquisite needle-shaped leaves glisten with white downy hair. It is not a strong taste at all, but has a very delicate sweet aftertaste, refreshing.
