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".

Other names:

En Shi Gyokuro, En Shi Jade Dew, En Shi Green Dew


The liquor is very clear but the taste is not weak at all. It has a distinct floral sweetness and a pleasant aftertaste. Very refreshing and special. We recommend using less tea leaves and water temperature of 75-85°c for this tea.


Only one-bud-one-leaf tea leaves picked from early spring season are used to make En Shi Yu Lu. Its shape is long and narrow. The infusion is very light (almost colorless) jade green.

h3>Brewing Guide

1. Rinse tea cup and teapot with hot water.

2. Use about 2 grams of tea leaves (1-2 teaspoons) for every 150ml of water. Steep tea leaves in hot water at 75°c (140°F) to 85°c (158°F) for 1 minute for the first and second brewing.

3. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.

* We suggest you can use glass-based or porcelain tea ware.

En Shi Yu Lu green tea has a distinct taste and resembles Japanese tea. I personally do not enjoy the taste of Japanese green tea, but if I were to have to choose a Japanese tea, this might be the one.

It truly deserves the name of chinese gyokuro, it is a marvelous tea that most japanese teas would envy, it is like a temomicha at an affordable price, when brewed japanese style in a houhin 5 grams to 100 ml water at 70 C, for 1 minute, 20 s, 45 s, 1.20 s, 2 min +, it rivals the best shuppin grade sencha`s.

I found a steamed Yu Lu in Tao of Tea in Portland many years ago and have been looking for another Yu Lu since. I don't like the earthy taste but prefer a sweeter taste without the earthy after taste, This Yu Lu is an excellent tea, with a sweet after taste. I usually drink only Imperial Dragon Well (Imperial Garden - San Francisco - Roy Fong) and this is a excellent and less expensive substitute.
