Spring 2021 first flush

Big trees of forested tea gardens

Soft, mouth-coating sweetness, relaxing Chaqi

Huey Wa is a small village located in the North-East of the massive mountain range that draws the border between Yiwu and Laos.

The tea gardens are located deep in the forest, a good two hours walk from the village. The middle stage of the forest is cleared to make room for the tea trees. The canopy is trimmed in order to create a partial shade environment. These forested tea gardens are quite rare nowadays and are mainly found at the Yiwu-Laos border.

Most of the tea trees were planted around 2007, the area took advantage of the Pu-erh tea boom in China. Traders would come from Yiwu to buy the tea. Some gardens feature larger tea trees. They could have been planted a long time ago, abandoned and rediscovered.

The rinsed leaves smell intensely refreshing. The scents are fresh and foresty, in a sweet way. The brew is really sweet, syrupy, mouth-coating sweet rather than foresty. This is a very pleasant and comforting tea. It remains sweet, never becoming grassy or harsh in later brews. It seems like good value to me, but it’s a little bit above my budget to buy a cake of. Maybe I would if it would really click with me, the sweetness is very nice, however this doesn’t feel 100% my thing, I guess it lacks that bit of edge or mystery for me. It’s just too accessible and pleasing perhaps. Really great tea though.
