This tea came from Matai village, which is located in the Lincang area, Yunnan. This place is famous for its many old tea trees and perfect climate for growing high-quality tea. Due to a high altitude, the difference between day and night temperature creates a special environment that promotes rich harvest during the whole year. This area is also covered with rocks, which makes local soil rich with iron and other minerals. Locals call their tea Yunnan Rock Tea due to a special mineral nuance in the taste of the tea.
This tea is made from 350+ years old tea trees grown at about 1650 m altitude.
