Taishun Guanyin Tofu

This unique tofu is made from the fresh leaves of Premna microphylla, a medicinal and edible plant documented in classical texts like Compendium of Materia Medica. The leaves are massaged in water to extract pectin, which is then coagulated with calcium powder to form the tofu.

Celebrated for its vibrant green color, tender texture, and natural herbal aroma, Guanyin Tofu is especially popular as a refreshing summer dish. Known as the"forest vegetable", it has been a staple in Taishun and surrounding areas for over 1,000 years and is deeply cherished by locals. It is an intangible cultural heritage item of Wenzhou and remains a beloved delicacy to this day.(ZhongXin)
