Absorbing the immortal mountain's nimbus, gathering the amrita of clouds, through thousands of years, the teas of Emei Mountain are always favored by famous scholars for its pure and mellow, light and refined extraordinary meaning and interest. On April 20, 1964, Chen Yi, the Foreign Minister at that time, went to Emei Mountain to conduct the inspection, and full of his praise went toward the tea when he played chess and drank tea with the old monk Jue Kong in Wannian Temple, he asked, "What kind of tea is this?" The old monk answered, "That tea is the special product of Emei Mountain, without a name yet.”, and asked Marshal Chen Yi to name the tea. Marshal Chen Yi looked carefully into the tea in cup, the tea water was clear and leaves were green, full of life, so he said heart-felt, “It’s really like the tender bamboo leaf, we can just call it zhu ye qing" (literally Green Bamboo Leaf). Since then, the repute of Zhuyeqing has been spread far and wide, and a legendary and much-told story was added to the tea industry.
