How Old Are You ?
Ancient Arbor Young Tea Workshop
I am grateful to my tea fans for their continues support. I still remember that at the "Dating for 12,000 Years" event, some guests felt that there was no objective scale to measure the age of ancient trees. They felt uneasy as they had no ideas of how to judge the age of ancient Arbor.
In fact, ancient tea tree is can be certified. The oldest officially certified ancient tea tree we know of is 3,200 years old. Still living in Fengqing, Yunnan. It's a pity that it's not our turn to drink.
Are there such ancient trees outside Fengqing? some! There are also tea farmers who have obtained official certification and registered coordinates. However, once an ancient tree is officially certified to be over 1,000 years old, the price can easily rise to tens of thousands per catty .
There are also many "hidden gems" that are unwilling to undergo certification. It is because the tax will be heavy, and it will be a bit ostentatious. Some of the nouveau riche are enclosing land and some are taking over groups of trees. Some modest and honest tea farmers are unwilling to be contracted. Excessive harvest damages the soil and the ancient trees. When a large number of tourists come, the environment is polluted, which is not the welfare of tea farmers.
How do general tea drinkers judge the age of ancient trees? There is no way, we can only rely on experience and luck; it depends on whether there is an honest supplier that provides genuine products and information, and only after drinking good tea can we have a baseline judgment. After learning so many lessons for so many years, I have learned something that I would like to share with you. Old tree tea has particularly heavy pectin; you have to judge how old the tea is by its mouth feel. Of course, you can also collect information, study the history of each region, and deduce the age of the ancient trees to confirm the taste judgment.
Can't imagine it? It doesn't matter! Ming Court of Cordis Hong Kong and Tina Cellar jointly held vertical tasting workshops for young tea of ancient Arbor, tasting tea from ancient trees that were 100, 300, 400, 800 and 1,000 years old. Each tea is precious. There are Dong Guo Mo Lie Pu'er, which is highly sought after by contemporary collectors, and Changning Dian Black tea, one of the three most famous reds. Of course, Chef Li Yat Fatt ‘s star-rated exquisite dim sum is indispensable. We provide tea sets for you to make tea yourself. If you don’t want to miss it, please register as soon as possible, seats are very limited!
