At the Pantao meeting, a god who accidentally overturned the tea tray and dropped the tea cup into the world. Later, when the fairy went to the world to search for a teacup, he found that it had already turned into a well, nourishing more than a dozen tea trees, and these numbers were of outstanding quality under the irrigation of this well. This is today's Longjing tea tree. There is also a historical story about the origin of Longjing tea.
