Slightly Acidic Sandy Soil

The loose soil condition makes it breathable and water permeable; deep soil layer makes it rich in minerals and trace elements. So the tea grow here is rich in natural nutrition.

National First-level Water Conservation Area

The tea garden is nourished and influenced by the water of Qiandao Lake. Qiandao Lake is a national first-level water body, and its water can reach the drinking water standard without any treatment. Such an innate condition ensures that the environment in which the tea trees grow is pure and pollution-free, and gives the finished teas a natural sweet aftertaste.

Natural Oxygen Bar

The annual PM2.5 value of the Qiandao Lake area is lower than 20, where the air is fresh and the forest coverage rate in the lake area is high. The lake itself just like a huge air purifier, for its wide water area can release a large amount of negative oxygen ions every day, so that forms a big natural oxygen bar, and also nourishes the tea trees.

Shrouded by Mist and Clouds

Influenced by the regulation of the lake water, the local area is mist-shrouded, warm and humid all year round; clouds absorb ultraviolet rays to form diffuse lights, which is very favorable to the growth of tea trees and the transformation of its internal materials.

Qiandaohu Tea Garden

Sticky boards and solar insecticidal lamps were set up between the tea trees to induces and eliminates pests and also can avoid contamination of chemical agents.

Origin

Chun'an County locates on the west of Zhejiang Province; here is the birth place of the first batch of national-level tea tree – Jiu Keng species, and also the most ancient tea area of China. The tea production history of Chun’an can date back to Eastern Han Dynasty, which is 2000 years from now. As the saying goes, good mountains and rivers produce good tea. A world-famous scenic spot, Qiandao Lake, is located in Chun’an. With fresh and clean air, over 95% forest coverage rate, Qiandao Lake is known as the "natural oxygen bar." It is the unique natural environment that provides an unparalleled and irreproducible environment to tea leaves.

Tea Bush

The leaves of this tea come from the Jiukeng species, also called Jiukeng Big-Leaf. This variety was originally found in Chun’an, Kaihua, in Zhejiang province, and also Shexian in Anhui. In the 1950s it was introduced to tea-growing areas all around Zhejiang, and then in 1985 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 acids, 20.9% tea polyphenols, 13.3% catchin and 4.1% caffeine, making them well-suited for production of green tea.
