A good growing environment is the fundamental requirement for producing premium and quality tea.

Bao Jia Organic Tea Garden

Bao Jia Organic Tea Garden in Tianmu

Surrounded by the Kwun Tong reservoir (官塘水库), the Baojia organic tea garden is located in the Tianmu Mountains of Lin’an, about one kilometer above sea level. At this elevation the garden experiences prime geographical conditions such as good drainage and moderate sunshine, two factors that are crucial to the growth of the tea.

The average annual rainfall here is about 1500mm, and the mountains themselves are often covered by clouds and mist, blocking direct sunlight so that the air humidity and diffuse light can enhance the quality of the tea leaves. Along with this, the soil is high in organic content and has a pH value that is beneficial to tea trees; as a result, the product from this garden is especially tender and pleasant.

Tea Farmer

Ms. Liao, who has been in the organic tea industry for about ten years, founded her own tea plantation and business from scratch. After several years of hard work and development her garden is now fully established, and has earned the USDA, EU, and JAS organic certifications to ensure the healthful quality of the tea.

In August of 2010, her Dragonwell Long Jing tea won the first prize in the Hot Tea Class at the tea championship in the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas, America.

Origin

This particular Hangzhou Tian Mu Qing Ding green tea comes from Tianmu Mountain, in Lin’an in the northwest region of Zhejiang Province, about 84 kilometers from Hangzhou. “Tianmu” in Chinese means “the eyes on heaven”: there is a pool of water atop the eastern and western peaks of mountain, looking like eyes that are always watching the sky.
At an elevation between 300m and 1556m, Tianmu Mountain is well known for its forest ecosystem and landscape of medium-subtropical regions.

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.
