The "Second Best Spring in the World"
The quality of the water was ranked to be the second best by the famous tea sampler Lu Yu in the Tang Dynasty. As the fame of the spring spreads, poets, writers and painters were all attracted to the place, inspired by the fragrance of the tea. The famous blind Chinese musician, A Bing, composed an urheen solo "Second Spring Reflecting the Moon" (Er Quan Ying Yue) which became a classic in Chinese music. Now it is a good place to taste Chinese tea. (Source: CRIENGLISH)
