Nuo Wu Village is in Mengku County of Lincang. It’s about 4 kilometers (as the crow flies) south and slightly east of Bing Dao village in the highlands on the eastern side of the Mengku River. Bing Dao on the western side of the river is at 1550 meters altitude, whereas Nuo Wu is at 1800+ meters altitude.
The Nuo Wu Village tea garden tea trees where our material comes from are 80-200 years old and grow naturally without human intervention. The trees are typical Mengku large leaf varietal that have grown in this area of Yunnan since ancient times. The leaves are olive green, thick and stout. The brewed tea is thick and sweet with bitterness that fades and transforms into something cooling and lubricating in the mouth and throat.
