Bao Jia Organic Tea Garden

Surrounded by Kwun Tong reservoir (官塘水库), the Baojia organic tea garden where several of our organic teas come from is just located in somewhere in Tianmu Mountains in Lin'an, 800-1000 meters above sea level. At this elevation, superior geographical conditions enable good drainage and moderated sunshine, which are two crucial factors to tea growth.

The average annual rainfall here is about 1, 550 mm. Tian Mu mountains are often covered by cloud and mist, which blocks, to some degree, the direct sun light on tea leaves so that the air humidity and diffuse light can be enhanced. Besides, the soil is high in organic content and has an acidic PH that is suitable for growing tea trees. Therefore, the end teas from this garden are especially tender and pleasant-smelling.

Tea Farmer

Ms Liao, who has been in the organic tea industry for about ten years, went through the arduous process of founding an organic tea plantation from scratch. After several years of hard work and development, the organic tea garden is now fully established, and has earned USDA, EU, and JAS organic certifications to ensure the healthy quality of the tea.

In August of 2010, dragon well long jing tea from Ms Liao’s tea garden won the first prize of hot tea class in tea championship of World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, America.

Origin

Our Tian Mu Mao Feng comes from Tianmu Mountain in Lin’an in the northwestern Zheijang Province, about 84 kilometers away from Hangzhou. The phrase “Tianmu” is Chinese for “eyes on heaven”: the name of this mountain comes from the two lakes atop each peak, looking like eyes forever watching the sky.
Tianmu Mountain covers about 4284 acres and ranges from 300 to 1556 meters in elevation, with a typical forest ecosystem and a landscape of middle-subtropical regions. The mountain rests on the northern edge of the middle subtropical region, but due to its particular structure, the climate is cool in summer and warm in winter with an average yearly temperature of 14 degrees Celsius. All of this combined with the natural red soil here result in this being a quality environment for growing organic tea trees.

Tea Bush

The fresh leaves come from trees of the Jiukeng species, and are mainly distributed in Chun’an, Kaihua of Zhejiang Province, and Shexian of Anhui Province. In 1985 this species was verified as a national species by the National Crop Variety Certification Committee. The dry leaves of the spring tea from this species contain about 3.4% amino acid, 20.9% tea polyphenols, 13.3% catechin and 4.1% caffeine, which makes them suitable for making green tea. The dry leaf is beautiful green, with a strong aroma and heavy flavor.
