En Shi Yu Lu is a very unique tea that originates from En Shi City (Ba Jiao Village area) of Hubei province. It is processed by Chinese Ethnic Minority and is the only famous Chinese green tea that is processed using steam method entirely. This is the Chinese green tea that most resembles Japanese green tea. 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. Among the many awards won by En Shi Yu Lu recently are:

 

1. Hu Bei Cha Ye Xue Hui Jin Jiang Chan Pin (Hu Bei Institute Gold Award Product) in year 2008, 2009, 2010.

2. Hu Bei Sheng Di San Jie Shi Da Ming Cha (3rd Hu Bei Province 10 Famous Tea Award).

3. Di Qi Jie Zhong Cha Bei Yi Deng Jiang (7th China Tea Cup First Prize).

This tea also has a long history. En Shi City 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 reign. It was not always processed by steaming. The processing method was improved from frying to steaming in 1936 by "Yang Run of Hubei Province Min Sheng" Tea Company. In 1945, En Shi Yu Lu was introduced to Japan and it was so well accepted that it was called "Chinese Gyokuro".
