蒹葭萋萋,白露未晞。

所谓伊人,在水之湄。

——《诗经·蒹葭》节选


White, white the reed,

Dew not yet dried.

Where’s she I need?

On the other side.

- The Reed (Exerpt), The Book of Songs

(Translated by Xu Yuanchong)

The third solar term in autumn - Bailu (White Dew), falls on September 7, or the 20th of the seventh month of Chinese lunar calendar this year. Entering mid-autumn, it is getting increasingly cold with the arrival of autumn wind. Dew gathers in the morning and birds migrate to the south, suggesting that the cold season is coming.

- 祭禹王 Worshiping Yu the Great


禹开创了中国史书中记载的第一个世袭制朝代——夏朝,是与尧舜并称的圣贤帝王。因治水有功,民间称他为“水路菩萨”。每年的正月初八、清明、七月初七和白露时节,江苏太湖西山都会举行祭祀大禹的香会,其中又以清明、白露的规模最大,每次历时一周。


The legendary Yu the Great, tamer of China’s greatest floods, founder of the Xia dynasty - the first dynasty in Chinese recorded history, is known for his upright moral characters, as respected as Yao and Shun of the Five Emperors and worshiped as the “God of River” or “Bodhisattva of Waters”. By the Taihu Lake in Jingsu province, ceremonies to worship Yu the Great are held annually on the 8th of the first month and the 7th of the seventh month of Chinese lunar calendar and around Qingming (Fresh Green) and Bailu (White Dew). The rituals during these two solar terms are grander than the others and can last for one week.

- 喝白露茶 Drink Bailu tea


民间有“春茶苦,夏茶涩,要喝茶,秋白露”的说法。茶树经过夏季的酷热,白露时节进入生长佳期。因而白露茶具有一种独特的浓郁甘醇,尤其受老茶客喜爱。


As the saying goes, spring tea is bitter, summer tea is harsh, Bailu tea in autumn tastes better. As summer heat recedes, tea trees enjoy more favorable environment around Bailu. Therefore, tea leaves picked during this period of time generate a uniquely rich and fragrant flavor that is preferred by many tea lovers.



- 酿米酒 Brew rice wine


南方一些地区还有白露酿酒的习俗,如在湖南资兴一带,每年白露,家家用糯米、高粱等五谷酿酒。先酿制白酒(俗称“土烧”)与糯米糟酒,再按1比3的比例将白酒倒入糟酒里。糯米酒可以促进食欲,温寒补虚,补充夏季人体的“亏损”。


Some southern regions, such as Zixing in Hunan province, preserve the tradition to brew wine with glutinous rice, sorghum and other grains during Bailu. Brew Baijiu (white liquor) and glutinous rice wine and mix the two at a ratio of 1:3. Rice wine can stimulate appetite, warm your body and supplement the loss in summer.



- @桂林 / Guilin


在广西壮族自治区桂林市,6个月大的鸬鹚正是捕鱼能手,它们善于潜水与渔民完美配合,是人与自然合作的最佳代言人。


In Guilin, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, now it is the time for 6-month-old cormorants to help fishermen go fishing. They are the great examples of fruitful cooperation between man and nature. 



“桂林山水甲天下”。


“Guilin's scenery is the best in the world."
