This is the earliest plucking 2021 Yunnan green tea from the organic tea garden in Wa Kan Shan of Simao, South Yunnan. The tea garden was built in 1960s. And the tea was planted at that time by tea seeds. So the cultivar in this tea garden is Qun Ti Zhong (Mixed cultivars) Yunnan Big Leaf Tea. The Qun Ti Zhong preserves the rich gene source of tea, which not only makes the tea from this tea garden have very rich taste, but also makes the tea behave sound resistance to pests and plant disease. (It is the same theory as that of herd immunity). The tea garden has practiced natural farming by the local Wa Race farmers all the while. And it has been certified organic ever since 2012. The altitude of the tea garden is around 1600m. The tea trees now are old bush aging almost 60 years old. It is the ideal tea garden for good quality teas. And now we are producing tea in the most ideal timing! Unlike most of other Chinese provinces, the climate of Yunnan is mostly influenced by Indian Ocean. So each year in between October and the end of April, before the humid air from Indian Ocean arrives in Yunnan, the weather is very sunny and dry. The tea here germinates in the beginning of March. And under this condition, the new germination has richest quality contents. The green tea has strong robust mellow taste, without any astringency, and produce very deep sweet aftertaste!
The 2021 organic Yunnan old bush tea germinated in the beginning of March.
The Spring of Yunnan is always sunny and dry.
There are a lot chickens living in the tea garden. They not only eat the insects on the tree, but also dig the ground to find more insects underground. So meanwhile the grass and weeds in the tea garden are killed by the chickens. This really forms a virtuous cycle in the organic tea garden.
This is the ground dug by the chickens.
The Wa Race farmers are plucking teas.
March 8th is the International Women’s Day. Most of the tea pluckers in the village are women. They are having a short celebration.
Very good fresh tea material.
This is a very tasty organic Yunnan Green Tea (Dian Lv)!
