Bang Wai Shan is a relatively unknown mountain in Fu Dong District, Lan Cang with vast forests of ancient wild tea trees. In 1993, this was confirmed by an expedition of 181 experts and scientists from nine countries, who elegantly proved that the origin of all the teas in the world is in Yunnan Province in China.
On Mount Bang Wai, there is a state-owned and protected, at least 1,000-year-old transit-type tea tree (Guo Du Xing), which is not quite a species of Camelia Sinensis or any other tea tree species known to date. These trees exhibit some characteristics of C. sinensis and some characteristics of other camellia species, suggesting that they are evolutionary points at which new evolutionary branches are being established. There is debate in scientific circles whether to call them hybrids or living fossils.
This dark puerh has a pleasant archival aroma and taste of well-ripened puerhs. The deep red brine is full of flavour dominated by woody, sweet and nutty notes. It is suitable for long-term ageing as well as for immediate consumption.
