During the Song Dynasty (1278), the aged emperor Zhao Bin escaped from the Mongol persecutors - Khan Khubilai - the son of Genghis Khan (in those days, China was under Mongol rule). The emperor went to Chao Shan on Mount Phoenix, where he found shelter, but suddenly became seriously ill. Locals watered him with tea, which had a subtle aroma of orchids, fruit overflows and a delicate ginger note. It is clear that the emperor immediately gained strength, and of course, he blessed tea trees. They say that he even desired his concubines.
