Da Mao Shan 大帽山 is a remote area in the farthest souther section of Jinggu County right near the border of Jinggu and Lancang counties (both in Simao). Da Mao Shan (lit. Big Smoky Mountain) is known as such as it's often clad in mist and appears to be smoking like a volcano. Our Da Mao Shan area tea garden is accessible only by motorcycle track and is comprised of 50-150 yer old trees growing naturally. Due to the remoteness of the area, the entire process from picking to mao cha is done by hand (kill-green is done with wood-fire).
The tea is very strong.. with alot of bitterness. Thick mouth-feel and a very long lasting taste and feeling in the mouth. There is a slight smokiness due to wood fired kill-green frying process.
