The Six Pu Erh Tea Mountains in China were chosen as a gift for the emperor. All the tea needed to be presented to the emperor before the Ching Ming Festival (also called Tomb Sweeping Day, which falls on 4th of April or 5th of April) and then can be sold to the public. Why is this? There are a limited number of young tea leaves when the weather is colder. Also the fragrance and nutrition of tea leaves are richer when young.
