It is said that the grandson of the Kangxi Emperor, of the Qing Dynasty, was gifted a cup of Longjing during a visit to the Hu Gong temple at Xi Lake. Impressed with the quality, he bestowed imperial status to the eighteen tea plants outside the temple. These bushes are still living and the premium quality leaves harvested from them auction at a higher price by weight than gold. The style originated in the Longjing Village, and now contemporary gardens can be found throughout the Zhejiang province.
