Speaking of Tongmuguan, anyone who loves tea will be familiar with it. This is the birthplace of black tea in the world. It is rich in species and has the reputation of "opening the key to the biological gene pool of species". And all this is due to its good ecology.
Tongmuguan is surrounded by clouds and mists all year round, with towering green hills. With 96% forest coverage and excellent mountain farms, the bamboo forest wild tea rooted in Tongmuguan does not have a trace of smoke and fire. The whole ecology is general.
The "Bamboo Forest Wild Tea" shared by Tongxinshe Teahouse today is a wild old tea tree in Tongmuguan, which coexists with bamboo forests and streams. The aromatic oil secreted by bamboo surrounds the tea tree for a long time, making the picked tea leaves rich and fragrant, with a unique bamboo fragrance and sweet taste. Among the tea mountains at the same latitude, there are few that can match the ecology of Tongmuguan. There are many wild old tea trees that are hundreds of years old. Take root in the peak, stay with the deep mountains all year round, and keep company with the white clouds. While "sitting and watching" surrounded by water mist, it is also absorbing the essence of the sun, moon, mountains and rivers. Broaden your horizons and look down, the whole valley is like a "cradle" bred by heaven and earth, constantly nourishing high-quality black tea products.
Song Zian's "Dongxi Tea Test Record" records: "Tea is among the plants and trees, and it is the most spiritual. Go to the mu step, don't change its nature." What I am sharing today is a little-known black tea from Tongmuguan. Because it grows in the moso bamboo forest, it is called bamboo forest wild tea (according to local people, the origin of bamboo forest wild tea is that animals in the mountains often pick it. The fruit of the tea tree in the mountain spreads in the moso bamboo forest or in every corner of the mountain). The tea tree grows on the humus soil of bamboo leaves, pine needles and rotten rocks several centimeters thick, sparsely clumps are hidden among the new bamboo shoots, the wild ones, the purple leaves, the rolled leaves, the golden tea buds, Sparse fluff, oily leaves, and other typical characteristics, confirm the unique ecology of this wild tea in the bamboo forest, excellent vegetation, and the most suitable environmental humidity for tea trees. This is also an important reason why the soup of bamboo forest wild tea is clear, transparent and golden.
Freshly brewed bamboo forest wild tea, the tea soup is bright and clear, and the comprehensive tea aroma intertwined with floral, fruity and moss aromas continues to tempt the taste buds. Bamboo forest wild tea is my first impression of Tongmuguan, and it is also one of my favorite black teas. The advantages of the natural growth environment have created its unique charm, showing the appearance of nature and the taste of wilderness. The tea fragrance from the soup is like the calm and coldness deep in the mountains, without a trace of miscellaneousness. The transparent tea soup is sweet and refreshing, and the moist sweetness reaches the throat from the tongue, showing the true nature of the wild black tea.
