Grown fur the I 'so of tlie Chinese
Itoyal Family Only.
New York Sun: The French have
been telling of the ardent desire of the
Chinese government to keep within the
empire seven hills that are right on the
edge of the country. The fact came
out a while ago while China and France
were rectifying the boundary between
the French colony of Tonkin and the
Chinese territory on the east. In the
course of this work the French repre
sentatives readily acquiesced in the re
quest of the Chinese that the Seven
Tea Mountains, as they are called, be
left on the Chinese side of the boun
dary. On these hills is grown the tea,
par excellence, that is exclusively used
on the imperial table at Peking. The
method of cultivating it has beeE relig
iously handed down from ancient
times. The tea plant grown on the
Seven Mountains is grown only from
the seed which is gathered in the fall
and kept through the winter in sand.
In the spring small pots filled with
mellow earth are placed in the earth,
and a dozen grains are planted in each
pot. When the young shoot3 are seven
or eight inches high they are planted
on the slopes of the hills, -which are
laid out in terraces. The plants are
covered with straw in winter and not
a weed is permitted to grow among
them. The flavor of the tea grown on
these hills is regarded as particularly
fine, and the imperial family and the
functionaries of the court never drink
anything else. Perhaps they do not
eonsum all of the tea, for the variety
Pu-eurl, the name of the town near the
hills, figures in the Chinese markets to
a small extent, and is sold at a princely
figure. It may be, however, that it does
not come from the tea fields that sup
ply the Peking court.
