THE STORY BEHIND OUR NAME
Our name Emeyu refers to the essence of tea moments.
The first part stems from the legendary Chinese tea mountain E Mei Shan. Covered in mist and cloud, clear springs, pines and flowers, it offers the perfect conditions for growing tea and is an inspiration of natural beauty and freshness. A reminder of the precious and generous world we live in.
The second part comes from the name of the ‘tea saint’, Lu Yu. This Chinese orphan perfected his tea skills under the guidance of Buddhist monks, wrote the first book on tea, became the Emperor’s favourite tea master and, after his death, became a saint to whom tea farmers still pray. Lu Yu is a by-word for perseverance, focus and attention to detail; and of course, to taste and quality.
