Angel's Comment:

Although it is made from a blend of spring tea and autumn tea, it still has nice aroma, mellow and thick taste. Good value for money, and worth trying.

This tea is made using spring and fall raw ingredients from the Yiwu Bai Hua Tan producing region. It has the scent of spring tea with the flavor and thickness of autumn tea. All Bai Hua Tan tea plants are situated in higher-altitude mountains, and their exceptional natural setting provides a strong base for their superior quality. Because the tea trees are in harmony with the environment, they thoroughly absorb the sunshine, rain, dew, and scent of the flowers growing in the highlands, giving the tea a distinct and fresh flavor.

Gently pry up a piece of tea leaf, you will notice a faint floral perfume mixed with a mild herbal scent. The aroma is not overbearing, yet it's enough to instill deep inner serenity and happiness. On first tasting, a fresh floral perfume erupts in the tongue, followed by a delicate sweetness. The tea liquid is soft in the tongue, smooth yet not astringent, and leaves a lingering aftertaste.

Tea Garden

Bai Hua Tan is found in Mengla County, Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province. It lies near the junction of the Tongqing, Bulong, and Jinchang rivers. The abundant water system creates unique biological conditions here. Hundreds of flowers bloom here, representing a vast range of species, therefore the name. The tea plants in Bai Hua Tan are widely spread. This is supposed to be the cultivated giant tea tree that was planted in its early stages. It has deep roots and a huge crown, making it difficult to harvest, hence the yield is inherently low. To get to Bai Hua Tan, you must travel upstream through thick mountains and jungles for two or three hours. The magnificent and quiet environment here, with high soil organic matter content, dense forest cover, and a fully functional plant symbiotic ecosystem, is a wonderland where tea plants flourish freely.

The only trail to pass in and out of Bai Hua Tan Ancient Tea Area. It is naturally formed by the mountain rift valley, not artificially dug.

The tea trees are so tall that need to use a ladder to pick them.


Yiwu Town, which is part of Mengla County in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, is in the southern part of the Yunnan Plateau, with high terrain in the north and low terrain in the south. The mountains in the north have ups and downs and are steep; the lava scenery in the south is stunning. It has been rich in tea since ancient times, and it was once one of the six major tea distribution centers. It was also one of the starting points for the Ancient Tea Horse Road, which forms a pattern centered on Yiwu and radiates in all directions to Beijing, Tibet, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam, and India. It not only witnessed the rise and fall of pu-erh tea trade, but also promoted the ancient folk international trade.

Tea Bush

This pu-erh tea is made from the large-leaf subspecies of the Yunnan large-leaf. It propagates sexually and takes the form of an arbour tree, meaning that it can grow to over six meters tall. 1984, the Fengqing large-leaf species was certified by the Chinese government as a national grade. It contains an abundance of tea polyphenols (30.2%) and catechins (13.4%), as well as 2.9% amino acids and 3.2% caffeine.
