Long-last pure taste! After tasting as if we stand alone in the tea garden which is located in mountains surrounded by clouds and mist, taking bath under sunlight, surrounded by the sheep who are grazing at large.

High-quality raw materials are the base requirement for making a good tea. TeaVivre’s nonpareil organic Fujian black is carefully selected with the one-bud, one-leaf method, restricting the tea farmers in the amount they can pick by hand but at the same time allowing them to utilize time-tested traditional production methods, both retaining the taste of the tea a well as giving it a softer, smoother note.

 

This black tea comes out with a distinct sweet potato aroma and taste upon the first sip, unique among other types of black teas; this sweetness lingers from the first infusion to the last and even beyond. Alongside that sweet potato aroma, you may be able to pick out a light floral or caramel taste too, and on opening your gaiwan lid, the steam wafts out with a faint milky sweetness to it.

This is a pure, delicious black tea, with a bright liquid and unique high mountain flavor, wrapped together in a strong taste and full body.

Tea Garden

Panlan Organic Tea Garden sits at the foot of Dafeng Mountain, the tallest peak in Yong’an City, in one of the most remote mountain villages. Because it is so sparsely populated and far away from concentrated populations, the natural and ecological environment here are preserved and become a paradise for wild animals.

The average elevation of the garden is between 980 and 1200m, with rocky, sandy soil, creating excellent natural conditions for the growth of the tea trees. The farmers here also utilize a purely organic farming method: they raise goats for weeding, and their fermented manure is used as a great organic fertilizer.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Zhong is the founder of Panlan Organic tea Garden, and has been planting trees in ecological, organic ways for many years. He never uses chemical pesticides or fertilizers in his gardens, and in addition to manual weeding, he raises herbivores such as chickens, ducks, goats, or cattle to assist. The manure from these animals also serves as a natural organic fertilizer providing potent nutrients for the tea trees. Since the gardens are located in high mountainous areas, natural spring water can be employed for irrigation as well.

Origin

Yong’an City is in the central part of Fujian Province, and belongs to the mid-subtropical maritime monsoon climate. There are many hilly mountains here, with the average annual temperature around 19.2℃. Yong’an has both a long history in tea cultivation as well as an abundant collection of ancient tree resources, and is an excellent resource protection area for wild tea trees.
