Cultivated according to age-old organic farming practices, without any chemical pesticides, fertilizers in any way - just pure Camellia sinensis tea leaves. These tea leaves come from old growth trees, which have never encountered a chemical, because they have never needed to. They are not grown in a traditional garden. Instead, they are grown in a biodynamic style; nurtured in their natural habitat, high up in the fecund mountains of Yunnan province in south-west China. The untainted ecosystem provides ideal living conditions for the trees to thrive for hundreds of years.
