Western Half of the Mountain — Mengku Xi Ban Shan

High mountains, with altitudes ranging from 1000’s to over 3000 m make up almost 100% of the total 475 km2 of Mengku, in the subregion of Lincang in Yunnan. That may explain why for over 500 years the native peoples here have been relying on the production of tea as a livelihood. Old tea trees cover large patches of the rocky slopes. While leaves from the east side of this cluster of mountains are known for their strong character, those produced on the west side are sweeter, silkier and more gentle. I think the latter is better in the form of maocha. We have matured this batch for over 8 years as a great entry point tea for teas made from the Mengku group of tea tree cultivars.
