|Lu Mu Dan was first introduced in year 1986. The tea leaves used for making Lu Mu Dan were harvested around the Gu Yu season and followed a very strict set of rules known as the "Three Set of Standards and Six Do Not Pick". The "Three Set of Standards" dictate that the harvesting must be limited to:|
1. Areas within the high mountains
2. Clean and unpolluted area
3. Di Shui Xiang tea plant variety, which is renowned for its quality and excellent fragrance
The "Six Do Not Pick" are:
1. Do not pick damaged leaves
2. Do not pick leaves with fish scale appearance
3. Do not pick on rainy days
4. Do not pick leaves that have traces of purple color
5. Do not pick frail leaves
6. Do not pick leaves that are not up to standard
On a recent visit to Russia, China's Chairman Hu Jintao presented Lu Mu Dan to President Putin along with Huang Shan Mao Feng, Lu An Gua Pian, and Tai Ping Hou Kui.
