Mt. Putuo is located to the southeast of the Zhoushan Archipelago of Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Province. It is one of the four Buddhist holy lands in China and the well-known site for Mother Buddha. Mt-Putuo has many manmade landscapes, including several hundred temples, monasteries, and thatched huts. Among the most famous are the Puji Temple, Fayu Temple, and Huiji Temple.

Monks of Mt, Putuo have always been believing that tea and Zen have the same taste. Since the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the monks of the Fuji Temple and other temples in the mountain have been planting and making tea, which is known as the Buddha Tea from Mt. Putuo. In the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), the Buddha Tea was chosen 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 producing area in Mt. Putuo includes the mountain itself and the neighboring places such as Zhujiajian and Taohua 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 Putuo tea mountain is behind Mt. Fcxiing (Buddha Summit), the summit of Mt. Putuo. It extends for miles from north to west and houses many springs. The tea trees are distributed on the southern slopes and the lee side of the flat grounds in the mountain. Such natural conditions give rise to the unique-quality Buddha Tea.

The Buddha Tea from Mt. Putuo is a semi-baked and semi-stir-fixation green tea. It is picked once a year in spring after the Pure Brightness. Its fresh leaves are the first bud and the first two leaves. 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.

Good tea
I am very happy with my purchase from this shop. I have been informed by a chinese person i knew that the second brew is often better as the tannins have been washed through on the first brewing. Good tea, bit expensive worth as a treat or if money not a barrier. I like this authentic Chinese green tea . Delicious

the best green tea
This tea does indeed have a clearer (and greener) appearance and the taste is much better too; it's fresher and cleaner tasting. The bitterness is not entirely gone, but it's only very minimal near the end of tea. You can tell this tea is of a much higher quality than the other brands and I can see why the price is higher. From now on, putuo tea is the only green tea I will drink, and I would absolutely recommend it.

Best Green Tea I’ve Tasted
I have bought the teapot and loose tea from umiteasets many times, but I recently gave it to me as a gift. It tastes so good that I fell in love with the taste and decided to buy a box of it.There's no bitter taste if you leave it for more than 30 seconds. It's also green in color as you'd expect not like the other brands. It's a little expensive but definitely worth it. The only thing I'm not satisfied with is that I hope the transportation can be faster. I don't like the long wait.
