    "Lushui is famous among the musical instruments while tea grown in Mengding Mountain is old friend". Mengding Ganlu is the oldest famous tea in China. It is said that Wu Lizhen of West Han Dynasty during the period of Ganlu, found the medical effects of wild tea on the top of Mengding Mountain, then he began to cultivate seven tea trees among the five peaks. Therefore, it was popular to plant Mengding tea and thus people call him "Master of Ganlu". The site of Wu Lizhen planting the seven tea trees nowadays still exists on the top of Mengding Mountain in Sichuan Province.
