A great high mountain tea (above 1000 meter). Highest grade Mount Fanjing green tea. We only process spring tea, handpick all teas and process the teas ourselves.
Order your tea when it's fresh. Green tea, white tea, black tea and yellow tea re picked in spring, when you order in April/May you'll have the fresh tea. We'll write down in the details in which year and at what time the tea was harvested. Light oolongs and Dancong oolongs will be available at the start of May and Wuyi Oolongs around July. If you buy Puehr tea, then buy aged puerh teas or fresh puerh with suitable for drinking directly.
If you're not familiar with natural teas, then we suggest you to order a number of varieties first. However, when you have some favorites, then we suggest you to buy the amount for a whole year. If you're not a very heavy tea drinker, then around 250gram of tea of 2 or 3 teas will be enough for a whole year. If you order for at least 100usd, we can ship by express, which will be fast. Fresh tea is the best, therefore we recommend to order at least 100usd per time.
When you make a purchase on Teazaar, the tea will be shipped from the tea farm. Most of the tea shipments will go through our Xiamen or Hong Kong office, but big shipments will go directly to you. Wherever you are in the world.
Our shipping costs are 20usd (or equivalent in other currencies) per order. All flat rate. All products are shipped from tea growers in Asia, therefore we suggest you buy a number of teas or a slightly bigger volume per time.
Shipments can be traced and take between 5 to 15 days till they arrive. We will send you an invoice and the price will also be written on the package. If your country requires import fees or other taxes, then you're responsible for this.
Once shipped, we will send you an email or sms with the tracking code.
Mount Fanjing is one of the most special and remote mountains China has to offer. This 2500 meter high mountain is an inspiration for anyone dreaming about the future of tea. A tea farm on top of this wonderful mountain!
Due to the high altitude, most of the areas have a yellow, stone soil, with some red soil in the valleys. Actually, most of the areas are not very suitable for tea growing, due to these circumstances. The surrounding area needs to eb a forest, the top of the mountain needs to have many trees, the soil needs to be slightly red or black and there need to be often mist in the mornings. The pH-value of the soil is 4.0 to 5.0, the annual rainfall around 1000mm on average (another sign that not all areas are suitable for tea growing), the average temperate is 16.8 degrees Celsius and the biggest river is called the Yin River (a wonderful river passing by many old river side villages.
The beauty of biodiverse tea farming is that it improves the environment, leading to more and more natural Guizhou teas.
Boil water till cooking temperature, then wait for about five minutes. Get a glass and pre-heat this glass with the water, then put 3-5 gram tea into the preheated glass.
