Brief Introduction to
En Shi Yu Lu (En Shi Jade Dew) Green Tea


En Shi Yu Lu (En Shi Jade Dew) is a very unique tea originated from En Shi of China’s Hubei Province. Situated in the southwest region of Hubei Province, Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture is bordered by Chongqing in the north and west, Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture of Hunan Province in the south and in neighborhood of Shennongjia National Forest Zone in the northeast and Yichang City in the east.

Enshi bears a subtropical mountain climate distinctly influenced by monsoon. The weather is humid and moderate all year round. Enshi is seldom bothered by extreme heat in midsummer and chilliness in midwinter. It is usually foggy and rainy. This tea also has a long history. En Shi was known to produce tea since the Tang Dynasty (618-907). History records suggest that En Shi Yu Lu was first created during Emperor Kang Xi’s ruling period.

The leaf appearance of Enshi Yulu is similar to sencha of Japan and the steaming process is very similar, but definitely not quite the same. Enshi Yulu is a rare Chinese green tea that is processed using steam method. Steaming is quite popular in green tea by Tang Dynasty (Tang Dynasty, steaming got lost, farmers in China use pan-fire technique instead), then the technique is imitated by Japanese to make the sencha. The first step in processing green tea is to steam the freshly picked leaves. This destroys the natural enzymes necessary for fermentation. The steaming not only helps to preserve the leaves’ natural oils and important natural antioxidants, it also helps to soften the leaves , making them more pliable.

After steaming, the leaves are rolled or twisted, which forces the cellular structure to break down so that they will release their aromatic juices when brewing occurs. A second gentle heating, also called firing, reduces the water content further, to 3 percent moisture. Repeatedly heating the leaves causes them to dry slowly.

The name “jade dew” refers to the pale green color of the infusion. Leaves are long and narrow, the cup is bold, strong, complex with an extremely powerful vegetal scent. The leaves are reminiscent of gyokuro or sencha leaves, but are clearly processed with skillful Chinese hands to make a perfect Chinese green tea with sweetness and floral taste.

En Shi Yu Lu is also special because of its rich selenium content, an essential trace mineral that helps prevent cancer, cataract, heart disease, growth disorders and many other ailments.
