The road to this isolated village on the border with Yunnan stops at the bottom of the hill where there is the settlement’s only store, restaurant, and still producing mind numbingly strong moonshine. Upwards past beautifully built traditional homes with generator electricity but with water coming via an intricate system of bamboo pipes from a local spring. From the edge of the village you can start to see old tea trees growing between other trees and later come across large tea trees which appear to be 300-400 years old.
On a hot summer’s day there is nothing more thirst quenching than a cool brewed sparkling mineral water jasmine drink. Although people have been making cool brewed teas in a refrigerator overnight for many years, ten years ago I discovered some teas like Jasmine or Earl Grey were wonderful in sparkling water as well as still water. Take care when opening after brewing, and then enjoy a fine refreshing jasmine infusion.
