Special characteristics:

MaioMiao village life The tea is harvested in some mountain villages near Songtao on the southeastern edge of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau in the Wuling Mountains area. The villages are located at over 1500m and the Miao are the largest ethnic group here. Gui Hong Mei is the best tea from this region. In the highest quality, individual leaf buds are harvested, which have a length of just 2 cm. This results in a tea with a rich and long-lasting aroma. Finished, it has a firm structure and a very dark color. The infusion remains almost greenish/yellow. The empirical values for the infusion temperature are based on the boiling temperature of water, which at this altitude is slightly below 95 degrees. Guizhou is still one of the poorer regions in China. The labor alone to pick 100g of finished Gui Hong Mei requires a day.
