Tea Bush

Native to Menghai County, Xishuangbanna, the Menghai large leaf tea tree species was rated as the most improved national tea variety in 1984. This species has the ability to grow 7 m tall in the wild and its leaves are bold green and much larger than common varieties. The buds of this species are yellowish green and covered in fuzz. The tea leaves of this tree are high in phytochemicals; one tea bud with two leaves contains 2.3% of amino acids, 32.8% of polyphenolic compounds, 4.1% of caffeine and 18.2% of catechuic acid. As a result, pu-erh tea made from the Menghai species is high quality, rich in flavor, with a soft taste and a full-bodied tea essence.
