|| Though it is often known as "the world of two Huangbos" and "the east and west of Huangbos," there are, in fact, three Huangbos - China Fujian Fuqing, China Jiangxi Yifeng, and Japan Kyoto Uji. They have developed critical Buddhist schools: Linji school, Linji school Huangbo sect, and Huangbo school. Fuqing Huangbo Mountain became a Bodhimanda from Tang Dynasty and developed into the Huangbo section in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasty. After being spread to Japan, the Huangbo sect became one of Japan's three primary Zen schools: Linji school, Caodong school, and Huangbo school.
The Fujian Huangbo Mountain is the roots of the other two temples of the Huangbo Mountains. However, it was the Zen Master Huangbo Xiyun Tang Dynasty that made the name of Huangbo famous in the world. Zen Master Xiyun is related to both Huangbo Mountains in Fuqing and Jiangxi. The former is the origin of his monkhood, and the latter is the place that he spreads Dharma. The former name of Huangbo Mountain in Jiangxi is Jiufeng Mountain (temple), and Master Xiyun renamed it Huangbo Mountain (temple) because he missed the Huangbo Mountain in his hometown Fuqing. The Zen Master Xiyun expanded Zen Buddhism widely and was later known as the style of Obaku. Especially in the history of Temple in Fujian, it can be noticed that during the Chongzhen period of the Ming Dynasty (1628-1644). The Wanfu Temple of Huangbo Mountain in Fujian showed a strong sense of establishing the source of the legal system with Zen Master Huangbo Xiyun in the Tang Dynasty as the ancestor of the Dharma line. Therefore, those who talk about Huangbo Zen tea in the future are inseparable from the Zen method of Jiangxi Huangbo Zen master.
This thesis takes Huangbo Mountains and tea culture as the theme focusing on the three Huangbo Mountains and tea culture Jiangxi, Fujian, and Kyoto, discussed the temple environments and the thought of Zen tea further. All three of the Houngbo Mountains are Buddhist sacred places and have a relationship with tea, which may be deep or shallow, but it is an essential link for tea culture. Its important significance lies in the inheritance of Chinese Zen tea and the formation of the Japanese Sencha Ceremony.
