Xiang Tan Cun (響潭村) village was perhaps the most inspiring stop on our whole trip. As you will no doubt read about in the accounts published throughout this issue, our day there was beyond magical. We spent the first half of the day picking tea. On the hike into the mountains, we learned that the entire village has always been organic, never using any pesticides or chemical fertilizers. All their tea and vegetables are produced as they have been for centuries, and as Nature intended. And yet, the quality of the tea and food is excellent and the yield more than enough, contrary to what tea vendors who sell inorganic teas would have us believe. In fact, the lunch we had after picking tea was perhaps the best meal of the whole trip. We had handmade noodles and steamed buns with several dishes of local veggies to go with them. You could taste the vibrancy in the food, as you can in this month’s tea.

The radiance of these pristine fields was so evident. All of the tea trees here are seed-propagated in a natural way, making this one criterion away from full living tea (the bushes were pruned). Not only was each bush unique, but they were all also thirty to forty years old, carrying wisdom and respect in their thick trunks. The trees were surrounded by rich biodiversity, including spiders, which are always a great sign. Only after a few years of organic farming, when the insect population has grown substantially, will spiders come and make a home there. This soil and place were rich. Remember, the terroir of tea (its environment, climate, soil, etc.) is the most important aspect of its quality. The richer the environment, the more the tea that grows there will offer.

In the afternoon, we sat and drank these amazing Maofeng tea leaves in a bowl. The tea was bright, crisp and clean, with a liquor that filled our insides with the spring weather of the mountains that surrounded us. This tea is incredibly uplifting and cleansing. After a few bowls, it feels like you have just showered, emerging from the session rested and renewed. Because of the pristine environment, coupled with little processing, which has left the leaves green and new, this tea fills you with birdsong, spiders, grass and flowers, and you feel like the emperor who rightly declared that spring had begun upon drinking such delicate liquor.

Our annual trips are inspiring highlights in our year and lifelong memories for this community. Though we cannot all go every year, these issues devoted to the trip bring us all along in spirit. We also now have a tradition of hand-processing tea ourselves, blending it with local tea we find and sharing it with you.
