From the same area as Mr. Feng’s 2008 XT tea, he writes:
This area lies around the border of `Menghai and Lincang and hosts Lahu, Wa & Han minorities living within a small region. It is a mixed minority area, living together but the Han are in the majority. The village I collected the leaves from has 20 families within an area not more than 1 mile in diameter, but some of the other villages in this region have 50-60 families. Most families have built their houses leaning into the mountain and constructed them of bricks made of soil. A long time ago many of the houses were made of straw and wooden shingles.
This is a very remote place. The villages are quite isolated and the villagers haven’t had much contact with the outside world. I feel the people here are very pure and innocent. The tea forest environment is also very good. The trees look fairly old, but don’t look very large. The local minority told us that the trees were planted around 6 generations ago and their ancestors passed these trees down to them. It’s difficult to estimate the age of them precisely, but I can say definitely more than 200 years old!
Because the mountain is very high altitude, the temperature is quite cold & the tea trees gow fairly slowly. This is my own opinion, maybe this is why the trees don’t look too strong and aren’t very tall, but I think the age is quite old.
The tea is rich and thick. It has been aged in Xishuangbanna and has mellowed considerably, losing much of the greenness of youth and giving a rich amber tea soup. In flavour, there are very slight smokey hints just perceptable. The tea soup is thick and smooth in the mouth, with a powerful qi.
Good quality ancient tree puerh cakes from this period are becoming more rare in the market as they are bought and hoarded by investors and puerh drinkers alike. I feel this offers an excellent choice for ancient tree puerh that is really a pleasure to drink.
