A full bodied, earthy infusion typical of high quality Yunnan black teas and harvested from private land with ancient old-growth tea forests.
The Ancient Forest: The ancient protected tea tree forests of Yunnan Province range from 500 to over 3000 years old. In fact, the oldest human-planted tea tree in the world grows in the Jinxiu Village in Yunnan Province, and is 3200 years old. With a diameter of 1.84 meters, the tree is also the biggest tea tree in the world, growing at an altitude of 3,245 meters.
Harvested from a small independent tea farm owned by Master Lin and his wife. They have been tea farming for more than 20 years on 15 acres. All growing is done by their family and friends. Geek+Tea buys from their local co-op which supports independent small farmers meaning more.money goes to them and we find some really fantastic rari-TEAS.
