Every piece of ancient tree tea leaf has their own story. In general, a tree needs to be at least a few hundred years old to be called ancient tea tree. As ancient tree tea is made from tea leaves of the ancient tea trees, production is low and therefore rare. Each cup of ancient tree tea is hard-won. The growth of an ancient tea tree takes hundreds of years. It has experienced countless changes of seasons and underwent strong winds and storms. Through hundred years of accumulation, their roots grow deep into earth drawing nutrients of earth. Ancient tea trees accumulate abundant nutrients over time.

Picking ancient tea tree is not as easy as it seems, it requires some skills and climbing techniques.  Generally, ancient tea trees grow in pristine and remote high mountain regions which is an arduous journey of rough path. Tea farmers need to bring along equipment and hike up steep mountains. This undoubtedly increases the difficulty of picking tea. As winter fades into spring, tea farmers enter into a busy harvest season. Tea farmers hike into tea gardens to pick early spring tea. Wholeheartedly, just to craft a pot of tea to perfection. The strong relish of wild mountains and the charm of ancient tree tea fuse in the teapot. Each piece of tea leaf is a precious gift of nature.
