The village of “Bo He Tang” (薄荷塘) directly translates as “Mint Pond”. The production are for this small village consists of a whopping 32 numbered trees, meaning that each harvest sees limited production, not to mention some of the highest prices in the Yiwu region.
True to its name, this tea has a bright sweetness and produces a gentle cooling effect in the throat. Made from fall 2016 old tree material, this tea captures all the best qualities of this top-tier region, but at a much more manageable price.
This area received its name due to the mint that grows close to some of the tea gardens, although whether these mint plants actually impart anything to the tea or not is debatable. Regardless, this tea is excellent from start to finish, and demonstrates why the region has reached the level of fame it enjoys today.
Some claim that Bo He Tang teas also have a party trick: Save the rinse, and at the end of your session with this tea, drink it. This is a great way to way to pick up the “mint taste” and character of the region.
