The amazing misty tea forest is a half-hour walk from the village, where they pick the leaves of some big old single trees. These old tea trees have an extraordinary feeling, which is also palpable in the potion. Worth to drink in a calm environment, when there is time to give attention to the tea. While young the tea has great vivid energies, also great for aging. We recommend leaving it to rest for at least 6 months to mature a little.

Today the Bada Mountains contain the largest old-growth forest in Xishuangbanna. Bada’s Xiaohei Mountain is also one of the primary wild animal habitats in Xishuangbanna. The approximately 1700-year-old Bada wild tea tree in Hesong village is said to be one of the oldest living tea trees.

Tasting notes:
Steamed gaiwan: undeniably southern character, little tobacco
Tastes, feeling: sweet, woody, citrus notes enrich each sip. The raw freshness has great potential for aging. It transported us to a careless mediterranean holiday with the Sun shining on our faces.
