In fact, sub tea also recorded here as early as the Han Dynasty's "mind": Yuyao people YU Hong, Ming mountain mining. Event of a Taoist priest, led by the three green cattle, cited Hung to Falls Hill, said: "son. Smell good son of a drink, see Hui Chang Reith. The mountains are big tea, you can phase to, in future sub-Chi Ou Chilan while also begging left with. "Siren Dianzhong by legislation. Often after family members into the mountains, by the great Ming Yan. Son of the Han Dynasty for "fairy" tea culture in one of the earliest Taoist figures in the history of the waterfall Yuyao famous tea mountains.
