Prestigious Ge Deng Ancient Tree Gushu Sheng Pu'erh Tea 革登

It is located at the center of the ancient six mountains of Yiwu and was famous for being the tribute tea during the Qing dynasty. Its highest elevation is 1950 meters. Ge Deng is famous for reverent Kong Ming mountain (孔明山) where Kong Ming, also known as Zu Geliang in Three Kingdom era, is said to be the educator of the tea cultivation about 2000 years ago. History also records that Ge Deng was also famous for a King Pu-erh Tree, (now died) where the locals gathered to worship and pray.
