Imagine a tea origin that nobody has heard about, yet somehow produces more tea than all of Japan. 

Guizhou is world-famous as the origin of ‘Maotai’, one of China’s most treasured distilled spirits; it sells for hundreds of dollars (thousands, for older vintages) in liquor stores worldwide.  Yet Guizhou is barely recognized beyond China’s borders for another treasure: tea!  Located at the edge of the Tibetan plateau, bordering some of China’s most famous tea origins (Yunnan, Sichuan, and Hunan), Guizhou’s mineral-rich soils produce some stunning tea.

Credit to our good friend Mimi Chiu (a Hongkonger who spent many of her school years in Vancouver) for introducing us to Guizhou teas

Experience:  very smooth yet full bodied brew with notes of celery, key lime and water chestnut.

 

The tea is harvested only once per year, before Qing Ming.  The tea artisans learned their skills from Anhui tea makers, so the technique resembles that of Mao Feng; however, the cultivar (Xiao Ye Fuding | 小叶福鼎) is imported from Fujian.  

Cool fact:  since Mimi came to Vancouver four years ago and gifted some of this tea to Geoff, the tea became one of his Dad's go to favourites.
