This spirited spring green traces back to the ancient steamed green tea known as Enshi Yulu, a Tribute Tea from Hubei that originated in the Tang dynasty and was later refined during the reign of Qing Emperor Kang Xi. Yulu, whose characters are the same as "gyokuro," is said to have inspired the Japanese temomi-cha shaping technique.
