sheng puer tea from one single 800-year-old tea tree
Age of the Tea tree:
An exceptional sheng puer tea plucked from one single 800-year-old tea tree in Bada Mountains, Yunnan province. It has a relaxed, deep character with a slight smoky aftertaste. It is interesting to know that the tea spent a few month in the southern regions where, due to the warmer climate, it started to develop much faster—it has a certain mature quality to it.
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 eldest living tea tree.
