Red tea from Yunnan, China・April 2016・野生古樹紅茶・Arbor/Biodynamic

Our Old Tree Yunnan Red was grown in Fengqing County, Lincang Prefecture, Yunnan. This region of Southern China boasts the country’s oldest tea trees – some hundreds of years old with deep root structures that allow a higher absorption of nutrients and minerals. Because of their age, the trees that produced this tea have adapted to the local ecological environment. As a result, they are resistant to most pests and diseases and require neither watering nor fertilizing.
