Round Up the Whole Gang of Tea Trees

If you love Oolong tea, you have to make a trip to Fujian. If you are hooked with tea, when you arrive at Fujian, you have to visit Anxi.

A long long time ago, in the remote mountain of Anxi, there was a guy who was named Hu Laing lived there; he was a hunter. One day, he found bunches of dark green trees on the hill, he picked up a branch and put it into the hot water and drank it after all. He felt great after he drank the water he said to himself, it was a magic tree. He went back to the hill and picked up more tree branches back home. He made lots of experiment and finally found the way by drying, rubbing and baking to make tea perfectly. The tea, Hu Laing made, was welcomed by locals. Anxi local dialect "Hu Laing" is similar to "Oolong", later, the locals called the tea "Oolong".
