Mengding Ganlu Tea

Meng Ding Gan Lu tea is the most famous tea from Mount Meng Shan, Sichuan Province in the southwest part of China. Ganlu is translated as "Sweet Dew", which refers to sweet flavor and taste of the tea. So Meng Ding Gan Lu is also named as Meng Ding Sweet Dew.

It is believed that the tea was first discovered by Buddhist monk, Wu Li Zhen, as early as 202 BC–24 AD. Meng Ding Gan Lu has been a tribute tea since the Tang Dynasty. This certified organic tea uses mostly tender tea buds picked in early spring, which are then carefully curled during processing.
