Not far from the Bao Shan range in Yunnan lies a tiny village home to Hui People, a Muslim-Chinese minority. It was here that we met Mr. Ji, his family, and fellow farmhands. Though mostly a traditional pu’er cultivator, each year the village produces around a hundred kilograms of beautiful Yunnan green tea. True to pu’er farming, his methods are rustically simple but effective. The end result is a supremely drinkable green tea with honey-like sweetness, low astringency and new terroir.
