Harvested from 600-800-1000-year-old tea trees in 2006 in Yunnan, China. This is a truly uplifting tea, which can make a special holiday from whichever weekday. It requires time and attention to open up our body and soul.
This tea has one of the biggest Chaqi (tea energy) in our selection. The experience of Chaqi is a good feeling, which is like a meditation state of mind. The tea opens up our body and mind, and the Qi can flow fully. It creates calmness, attention, dynamism, happiness, and consciousness.
Da Xue Shan (大雪山), which is the Big Snowy Mountains, is located in the northern part of Yunnan province. The northerly climate has an interesting effect on the teas: they tend to have a fresher, more fragrant character that differentiates them from their southern relatives.
Our friends here pay extreme attention to the process of making the teas. Even for the shortest steps of withering, they cover the leaves with gauze so that they stay clean and unharmed by bugs and insects. This care echoes in the superb quality of every tea they sell.
