Traditional tea processing techniques and their associated social practices in China were inscribed on the UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity on Tuesday.

China mainly has six categories of tea, namely green, black, yellow, oolong, white, and dark. Enshi Yulu Tea or Jade Dew Tea, originating in the Bajiao Dong township of Enshi in Central China's Hubei province, is a famous steamed green tea.

Its dry tea leaves are tight, thin and straight, and tastes fresh after brewing with hot or cold water. The tea is rich in organic selenium and preserves a great deal of nutrients.
