Wuyi clovershrub, which is often called "the best tea", is a unique one among Chinese renowned tea varieties. It is the king of rock tea varieties and a national treasure. It is elaborately made of fresh leaves of some trees growing in Wuyi Mountains in Fujian Province through special processes. Having a strong aroma, a mellow flavor, an obvious rock-tinged charm, and a sweet aftertaste lingering in mouth, the made tea is renowned as "King of Wuyi Tea". Clovershrub tea trees, which belong to shrubs, are over one thousand years old. At present, there are only six tea trees growing on the precipitous cliffs at Jiulongke Gorge. Incredibly small in quantity, clovershrub tea is regarded as a rare treasure.

Clovershrub trees, king of all tea varieties, live on overhanging rock above sheer precipices. Being nature and pure, with a good taste prevailing over others, clovershrub tea is praised as "the best rock tea". Coupled with the essence of lush Wuyi Mountains and the aroma of indigenous rock flowers, clovershrub tea is highly renowned and extremely favored by tea enthusiasts. Nowadays, clovershrub tea has its reputation on the rise. As its reputation goes, "Clovershrub, world famous tea", which is true.

The renowned clovershrub tea trees live on overhanging rock above sheer Jiulongke precipice in Wuyi Mountains. On one of those palisades remains the inscription "clovershrub" engraved in 1927 by a monk from Tianxin Temple. Here, the sunlight time is short, reflected sunshine is sufficient, temperature varies considerably between daytime and night, and a slim spring is dripping down from the top of the rock all year round. The unique quality of clovershrub can be attributed to such a special natural environment. The existing six clovershrub tea trees, which are all shrubs, have rather thick leaves and somewhat red buds. When sunlight sheds on the tea trees and the rock, the rock will reflect a sparking red color, which is conspicuous. As for the name "clovershrub", there is a touching legend. As the legend goes, a monk from Tianxin Temple cured a court official with tea made of fresh buds of a tea tree growing on the cliff rock at Jiulongke Gorge. The cured court official covered the tea tree with the red robe he was wearing to express his gratitude. The red robe dyed the tea tree and turned it red, thus coming this name (which means "large red robe"). As Wuyi Tea Leaves Institute has succeeded in its experiment on applying the technology of asexual reproduction to clovershrub trees, the clovershrub can be produced in batches after breeding plantation.

The Differences between Original Clovershrub Trees and Common Clovershrub Trees:

Original Clovershrub Trees:

There are three original clovershrub trees (six shrubs) growing in Jiulongke Gorge Spot in the Wuyi Mountains, all of which are over 350 years old. According to the "List of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage of Wuyi Mountains" approved by the UN, these original trees are listed in the world\'s natural and cultural heritages as ancient famous trees.

Purebred Clovershrub:

After a certain breed of the original clovershrub tea trees has been cultivated through separate cuttage breeding (asexual reproduction), tea leaves from this tree are selected and processed to make tea. This tea is called purebred clovershrub. This kind of clovershrub can\'t be called the second or third generation of clovershrub because there is no generation existing in asexual reproduction.

Commercial Clovershrub:

It refers to dried and blended tea leaves of more than two breeds of original clovershrub tea trees (generally 4 or 5 breeds). As every breed is cultivated through asexual reproduction, this kind of clovershrub also can\'t be called the second or third generation of clovershrub.


Some tea marketers declare that their Wuyi Rock Clovershrub is made of tea leaves from original Clovershrub tea trees, which is impossible because tea leaves from original Clovershrub tea trees are unavailable to tea enthusiasts anyhow. So make sure you know that. But bred clovershrub is available. At present, there are four concepts when it comes to clovershrub on the market: the first one refers to original clovershrub tea, the second one refers to Wuyi rock tea (a joint name), the third one refers to dried tea leaves which are a blend of several kinds of tea leaves and have an aroma of fresh leaves and the best properties, and the fourth one refers to Beidou and Qidan (both are names of original tea tree varieties).
