Tea of The Month–High Mountain Meizhan

A little path only the local farmers know can lead us to the tea field. 2.5-hours of walking from the bottom of the mountain to the tea field is all it takes to pick the tea leaves.

Have you tried the high mountain Meizhan black tea? It is a tea of love and warmth. It is the tea of February.  

It comes from a friend’s farm which was abandoned. The tea field is located on a mountain that is over 1000-meters high near Estelle’s hometown. Building a road isn’t easy. A little path only the local farmers know can lead us to the tea field. 2.5-hours of walking from the bottom of the mountain to the tea field is all it takes to pick the tea leaves. The high altitude allows a longer time for the tea plants to take nutrition from nature. Hence, it gives us an amazing experience. 

I remember the dark chocolate aroma of the dry tea leaf the first time when we sampled the tea. It was so unique and special that I couldn’t resist to make it. 

As you pour boiling water to rinse the tea, the sweet aroma quickly comes out of the teapot. You breathe in and feel loved. This is a tea deserves your full attention. It changes from one infusion to another. If you like coconut sweets, this tea gives you a rich coconut sweetness. If you like rose, you can smell the fragrance of the rose. If you like baked sweet potato, you might feel it has sweet potato in the tea. When you sip it, you feel so relaxed and warmed.  In China, we actually call black tea ‘red tea’ following the glamours colour of the tea liquor. As you can see, Meizhan shows you a rich golden, amber colour.

Nature and the good tea farm have given us their best. We cherish it and respect it.
