Yuhang Festivals

China Tea Sage Festival
Tea is so central to Chinese history that its first expert is remembered more than 1,200 years later - Lu Yu, honored as the Sage of Tea for his contribution to the nation's tea culture.
Lu Yu is best known for his monumental work titled Classic of Tea - or Cha Jing - the first book o­n cultivating, making and drinking tea.
In his book Lu Yu ambitiously presented all that was then known about Chinese tea culture. It is divided into three sections and 10 chapters describing the origins of tea along with its accoutrement, collection, brewing, preparation ceremonies and famous producing areas. Perhaps his greatest contribution is the seventh chapter entitled "Tea Events", which recorded thousands of years in tea developments from legendary times to the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907).
Today the site along Shaoxi River at the foot of Jingshan Mountain where Lu Yu studied tea and wrote the book is still visited by many tea devotees.
Well known for its Jingshan Temple and Lu Yu Spring - which still yields its water today - Yuhang district in Hangzhou is also considered the birthplace of the famed Japanese tea ceremony.
In the second year of Duanping Period of the Southern Song Dynasty (1235 AC), Japanese Buddhist Master Shenyi (1202-1280) came to China to learn from Master Wuzun in Jingshan Temple. After his return to Japan, he introduced the tea preparation ceremony used at the temple, which gradually evolved into the Japanese ceremony still popular today.
In addition to the home of the ceremony, Jingshan Temple is credited as the birthplace of Lu Yu's Classic of Tea, making Yuhang district ideal for the China Tea Sage Festival.
