The creation of blush has a real history, but the folks are more willing to have this historical romance and magic, so they give her vivid and rich content, and the resulting process is very impressive.
According to legend, on a spring day in the late Qing Dynasty, there was an old man named Wu Zhizhong at the entrance to the Tuen Mun. One day, he recovered more than 100 kilograms of fresh leaves from the mountains. He rushed home and poured fresh leaves on the ground, all of which were blushing. The old man is stunned and thinking about throwing it is a pity, it is better to say it. However, after he made the tea according to the green tea method, it was even more dumbfounded, and the tea is all black. Despite this, the old man picked the tea to the tea house and started to walk several times. The tea boss said, "This is a bad bad tea, don't!"
The old man is tempered, he can't sell it, he will not drink it. At the time of the Opium War, foreigners had publicly come to China for activities. When the old man took a bunch of tea and walked home dejectedly, he met a foreign missionary. The priest asked casually: "What do you pick?" The old man was full of grievances and there was nowhere to vent, so he said with no anger: "Oolong."
"Oolong?" The priest actually came to the interest, but must look at it. The old man had to stop and let his bag look at tea. The priest saw the tea color black and thin, the smell was fragrant, and he couldn't help himself. He chewed it when he licked it. The taste was sweet too, and he yelled at the time, "Oolong, good tea."
Sell ​​it to me quickly. "The old man opened a price several times higher than usual. The priest did not bargain, and he bought all the teas with a painful and quick money. When he left, he said, "Your oolong, from tomorrow, I will Packed up. ”
The unexpected harvest has made the old man alive. When I got home, I immediately told my family about the good news, and the whole family was happy to keep up. The family carefully recalled the process of making tea at that time and felt that there was no particular difficulty. So I decided to start doing this kind of tea from the next day, and I would do better than today, and I would not lose face to the Chinese.
The next day, the whole family went up the mountain, and until the sun was at the top of the noon, they hurriedly picked the tea home. After the tea was red, they made tea according to the method of the first day, and the oolong appeared again. The whole family was overjoyed and immediately told the villagers about the good news. The villagers came to see it, and it turned brown and brown. Someone grabbed a soaking water, and the tea soup was also red and bright. He suggested: "Since the tea soup is red, it is called the black tea of ​​Tuen Mun. It is better than called Oolong." Everyone agreed, so follow the example. Red was born, and the name was passed abroad.
Folklore pinned on the good wishes of tea farmers, and also pointed out the key to the need for black tea to ferment, and it is not far from the real history of the creation of blush.
