This is a very rare black tea. Leaves are collected from very old tea tree that aged about a few hundred years old. Tea is grown at the altitude of 2000m in Wu Liang mountain range located at Yun Xian county in Ling Cang. These trees belongs to the high mountain minority races, like Ye race. Tea is not grown in the normal tea garden, but planted in the deep mountain, as if part of the forest. Tea is grown in completely natural environment, just like other wild plants in the forest, no fertilizer and no pesticide is used. Each batch of tea consists of leaves harvested from independent tea tree, therefore each time the tea gives different flavor and taste. Once this batch finishes, we stand no chance to obtain the same quality again. Although we will continue this tea in the future, the particular taste and flavor only lasts for the same batch of tea.
Due to the old age of tree, high mountain environment and no fertilizer is applied, tea grows extremely slow. As a result, tea tree produces leaves with much smaller cells that are very rich in polyphenols and minerals. Tea gives very strong after taste with depth in flavor and very thick body. Its flavor remains on our throat and sweetness lingers for a long time. Thanks to the high mineral content in tea, it can significantly improves our blood circulation. For this tea, if we drink more than 200ml, we feel very warm even if we drink after tea is cooled down. The more we drink this tea, the more we feel sleepy. The effect is just like having exercise or massage. Improved blood circulation will make us sleepy. In other word, this tea makes us relaxed and we can have better sleep. Due to the significant relaxing effect, it is advisable to drink after work.
