Brief Introduction to
Qing Cheng Xue Ya (Snowy Sprout) Green Tea

Qing Cheng Xue Ya tea (literally as Snowy Sprout) produced in Qing Cheng Mountain. Qing Cheng Mountain is located in Du Jiang Yan, Sichuan, China. It is amongst the most important centres of Taoism (Daoism) in China. In Daoist mythology, it was the site of the Yellow Emperor’s studies with Ning Fengzhi. As a centre of the Daoist religion it became host to many temples. Known as the fifth among the most famous Taoist mountains of China, Mountains Qing Cheng is one of the places where Taoism came into being. With the snow-covered Mingshan Mountain in the background and the Chuanxi Plain in front, the evergreen Qing Cheng Mountain covers an area of over 120 square kilometers. Altogether it has 36 peaks covered with thick forests of trees and bamboo, 72 caves and 108 scenic spots. The name Qing Cheng means green city. It gets its name from the way the peaks resemble the structure of a city wall. The mountain is well known for its serene scenery that contains halls and temples shaded by forests and enhanced by interesting legends and anecdotes.

Tea production area is surrounded by hills, mild climate, abundant rainfall and fertile soil, which is very suitable for tea growing. The tea saint Lu Yu wrote in his voluminous grand work Tea Scripture: “Tea that grows on Qingcheng Mountain Zhangren Peak, is the top-rank of teas.” It is locally known as “Snowy Sprout” due to the white color of the hair on the leaves.

QingCheng XueYa is certainly a distinctive tea, very unlike any other Chinese green teas. The pre-brewed leaf is unusual in appearance: small, thin, straight leaves, dark greyish-green with dusty white hairs on the surface. The smell of the dry leaves is sweet and nutty. When made in a glass teacup, the elegant tea leaves seethe as white clouds rolling, accompanied by the fragrant team. The brew is barely golden and the aroma unassuming. The taste is that of a very light, flaky pastry that just melts on your tongue, leaving behind a delicate icing to envelop your taste buds in a warm embrace. After a few sips, your whole body feels lighter, wrapped in a cocoon of ultimate relaxation.
