Breakthrough is an autumn 2015 tea from Mengku (勐庫). Mengku is located in the Lincang city area on the banks of the Lancang River in Yunnan Province. The area is criss-crossed by mountain ranges, with a unique climate and abundant natural resources. Since ancient times, it has been famed for producing exceptional tea. The community of wild tea plants that grow at the Mengku garden on Daxue (Big Snow) Mountain in Lincang form the highest-altitude and most densely-growing community of large-leaf trees discovered to date. The main peak of Daxue Mountain rises to 3233 meters above sea level; the community of old tea trees are distributed over an area of around 800 hectares, situated halfway up the mountain, between 2200 and 2750 meters in altitude. Here, the average annual temperature is below 11°C, with yearly rainfall averaging around 2000 millimeters. These heaven-sent natural conditions create a veritable paradise for tea plants. The area is a treasure of the kind rarely seen on earth, a site of natural heritage that is home to a rich gene pool. Among botanists and tea leaf experts from several scientific bodies (including the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences’ Tea Research Institute, the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Kunming Institute of Botany, and the Yunnan Province Academy of Agricultural Sciences’ Tea Research Institute), the Mengku tea garden in the Daxue Mountain area, located in the Shuangjiang Autonomous province in Lincang, where these ancient wild tea plants grow, is recognized as one of the centers of origin of large-leaf tea varietals.

Mengku is the highest-altitude tea found in the area. The tropic of Cancer, situated approximately 23.5° north of the Equator, is the birthplace of farming culture and is known for its rich ecology. The Tropic of Cancer crosses Lincang’s Shuangjiang (“Two Rivers”) County, forming a lifeline for top-quality puerh tea. The region situated at a latitude of 100° east is thought by aboriginals to be superior for tea growing. The place where these two lines cross (the tropic of Cancer at 23°26’, and 100° east) falls directly over Shuangjiang, and is known as the “Golden Cross” of tea growing. The tea plants that grow in this area benefit from the nourishing waters from the upper reaches of the Lancang River, resulting in a tea liquor with a strong, robust, bitter/astringent aroma and flavor.
