Meng Ding Gan Lu is a widely known green tea in China. It is produced at the Meng Ding Mountain in the Sichuan province. Gan Lu means “Sweet Dew”, and a legend says that this kind of tea was discovered by the enlightened monk named Wu Li Zhen, which is why Meng Ding Gan Lu is also called “Tea of the Immortal”.
