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.
