The production of pu-erh tea is one of the main resources in Guo Gan. The Capital Lao Jie is located in the Shan Bang Plateau between Myanmar and China, adjacent to Yunnan, China.

The terrain of Guo Gan is between 450 – 2400 meters in elevation, with an average of 1216 meters. Guo Gan belongs to typical low-latitude and high-altitude plateau humid monsoon climate zone. It has plenty kinds of plant species and still retains its original ecological environment.

Together with the wild arbor trees in the original growth ecological environment, it has become the most superior ecological material of Pu’er Tea.

There is a famous Bangma Daxue Mountain in Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan. The mountain peaks are covered with snow and clouds all the year round. Ancient tea trees of Yunnan large leaves spread throughout the original forests in the mountain. On the hillside of the northern section of the Bangma Mountain Range, there is an ancient Yi village called "Bing Dao", the proverb "Biandao", which means the place where the bamboo fence is used as the gate. At the other end of this Bangma Daxue Mountain, it has already crossed the border, which is the Guo Gan ancient tea tree area. Guo Gan and Bing Dao are respectively on two sides of the Bangma Daxue Mountain. They have almost the same high-quality soil and ecological environment, so the ancient teas of the two places are as the same fragrant.

History

Guo Gan Puerh tea was active from 1897 to 1937, when the black tea made here was only available to the British nobility. After 1937, the trade of Myanmar's Guodan tea was almost stagnant, and the locals switched to other crops. The tea plantation here in Guo Gan has hardly been destroyed by humans in the past hundred years. The ancient tea tree retains a good wild state, which in turn forms the wild characteristics of Guogan tea.

Until the rise of Pu erh tea in recent years, because of the large increase in the price of YunnanPuerh tea, a few tea industries began to introduce Guogan mao-cha raw tea material to make Pu'er tea, and it was recognized well in the market. Thus Guo Gan tea gradually be known to Puerh tea lovers.
