Summer Excursion of Iceland
Have we stopped quarantine? Have Airlines resumed flights? Does Iceland produce wine?
I am talking about the Puer Tea from “Iceland Village “(Bing Dao), literally means Iceland, of Yunnan that has been speculated to a sky-high price. In the last decade, tea connoisseurs were fascinated by tea from Bang Zhang with punching fruit notes. Follow by the Iceland Tea run, price of Iceland tea increased a hundred times in 10 years like the Bitcoin. Billionaires rent these ancient tea trees and make their own tea with their own labels. My friend with black humour says, keeping an ancient Puer Tea Tree is much better off than keeping a concubine!
It is a fashion now drinking original grow of ancient tree tea. With 500 years of history and situated at 3200m elevation, “Iceland “tea has got very powerful “Qi”, punching floral and fruits notes. Direct ex-plantation, this new tea from ancient tree do not need a long time for maturing. It keeps your stomach well and comfortable when being drunk young. No wonder it is so irresistible. Tea from ancient tree at high altitude and snowy mountains possesses a very unique aroma of suet and rock sugar that makes it extraordinarily elegant and fascinating.
There are 5 communes in the “Iceland Village”: Nan Bi, Nuo Wu, Ba Wai, Di Jie and the Old Commune produces the most precious tea. Price of the Old Commune tea is far from affordable to the general public. Freshly picked tea leaves worth RMB 20,000 per Kg and cost of finished product is around 50 thousand per kg. You can image the second hand or third hand price might cost ten thousand per kg.
Strangely, the more expensive it is, the more sought after it is. Collectors are more than happy to buy it. However, the area of “Iceland “is not big and production is tiny. Counterfeit is everywhere. My fans would have read my FB page that a close friend was parcelled not long ago. The only way to avoid being cheated is to learn how to differentiate between the authentic and the fake.
We are fortunate to have acquired a small parcel of 2020 Ba Wai Cuvee and Di Jie single tree Spring Harvest. We take pride to present the below tea ceremony lunch for you and show you around the “Iceland “on the tea boat.
