"The Chinese have always revered hermits. No one has ever explained this, and no one has asked for an explanation. Hermits just exist: outside the city walls, in the mountains, a few wisps of lonely cooking smoke drifting behind the snow...".
In fact, there is always a certain similarity between the good old rock tea and the hermit, which will surprise you. It turns out that Wuyi rock tea still has this world, and the precipitation of time endows the old rock tea with charm. Under the long-term "mysterious seclusion", Wuyi rock tea will have a different taste and different health attributes.
The value of drinking is high, and it is also a folk health product. In fact, as early as the Qing Dynasty, Wuyi Mountain had the habit of storing aged tea.
Zhou Lianggong's "Fujian Tea Song" in the early Qing Dynasty wrote: "Although it is good before the rain, it is too new, and the anger is hard to get rid of. It is three times the price of deep red, and every family shows off the next year." The verses that have been passed down from word of mouth to the present vividly describe people's habit of drinking aged tea. Although the tea (referring to new tea) picked before and after Grain Rain is good, it is difficult to eliminate the anger, so it is not suitable to drink it immediately. After the rock tea has been stored, the fire has gone, and the taste is more mellow and more palatable. Every household is proud of storing aged tea.
In 1713, Wang Tan's "A Brief Introduction to Fujian Travel" also mentioned: "Fujian vulgar tea drinks, but the new ones are addicted to old." It seems that there was a custom of drinking tea in Fujian in the middle of Qing Dynasty. the
A large number of literary and historical records come from life. For a long time, there has been a custom of drinking old rock tea in Bamin, not only because of the high drinking value of old rock tea, but also because of the existence of old rock tea as a family medicine, which can stop dysentery, dispel fire, It has almost become a consensus to relieve greasy, anti-inflammatory, etc. Aged rock tea has a broad public base, and has a long history of circulation and drinking. However, whether it is an old tea house during the Republic of China, or the Xiamen Tea Import and Export Company during the unified purchase and marketing period, it is difficult to see these aged rock teas nowadays.
In 1987, with the end of unified purchase and marketing, the rock tea market was liberalized, and some private tea factories appeared one after another in Wuyi Mountain. The tea factories were more flexible in operation and could freely control production. However, the market was not mature enough at that time, and there were frequent fluctuations. There will be some unsalable products in the factory, and they will be left over to become aged rock tea. We have some old rock tea hidden deep:
1977 State-run tea factory, Tian Xin Yan Shui Xian
In 1992, a state-owned tea factory, Wu Yuan Jian Iron Arhat.
In 1992, the state-owned tea factory, Niulan Keng water beetle.
1993 State-run tea factory, Hui Yuan Keng Shui Xian
These teas are the oldest rock tea in our teahouse.

After drinking the old tea, the whole body is transparent, the forehead and back gradually become hot and slightly sweating, and the heat reaches the soles of the feet, making the whole body comfortable.
