This is a very fresh, 2023, young Mao Cha with beautiful leaves that come from ancient wild Shan Tuyet trees growing in Xa Phin, Ha Giang. This area is very, very close to the Yunnan border. These teas grow in amidst a wild symphony that I was fortunate to hear with my own ears and which you may have already witnessed on our Instagram channel. Xa Phin is a pristine environment where over the centuries the tea trees have grown wild in an ideal misty, tropical climate with perfect soil for happy tea trees and delicious tea!
