“..Bright and flagrant, made with real Jasmine”

Pictured: an artists rendition of a Jasmine Flower.  Mr.Li Minghan makes his Organic Jasmine Oolong by picking flowers the night before bloom and placing them on a bed of fresh tea.  This allows the tea to absorb the scent of the flowers which are then removed.

 

Farmer Li Minghan is a tea cultivation genius and Three Purities Organic Tea Garden is the most natural Tea farm I’ve ever been to.

Over ten years he transformed his garden into an eco-paradise, using natural mulching methods to encourage biodiversity, he has completely stopped using all mechanized farming methods and does not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

His Jasmine Oolong is the most naturally delightful Jasmine Tea I’ve ever tried.

Unlike the majority of Jasmine Tea, it is made using real Jasmine flowers at the end of the production process.

The flowers are picked on the night before they bloom and are then mixed with the tea over the course of a couple days to allow it to soak up all of their sweet perfume.

This is how Jasmine Tea used to be made before the international commodification of factory produced tea made this traditional process harder and harder to find in the late 1800s.

This Jasmine Oolong is floral, fragrant and has all the body of Mr.Li’s other wonderful teas made with the Jade Oolong cultivar which is only found in Taiwan.

It simply isn’t possible to get better Oolong from the Nantou region of Taiwan.

A little more about Li Ming Han and Three Purities Organic Tea Garden:
Mr.Li Minghan has a pure heart and created Three Purities Organic Tea Garden to save his family land from the damage that industrial automation and chemicals cause to the earth.
Most tea farms in Nantou county Taiwan use farm machines which are hard on Tea trees and soil.
Usually they have to rotate the fields every ten years, leaving them fallow due to nutrient depletion of the land.
This is because the bushes simply can’t take the abuse that mechanical farming punishes them with.
It is also common for farms to use chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and this is not good for the environment and perhaps not good for our bodies either.
Mr.Li Minghan has solved this problem by using the arts of Permaculture farming to create semi-wild tea gardens on his estate.
All of the bushes are allowed to grow without interference and if for some reason the leaves on an individual bush are not healthy, they are not harvested that season.
Mr.Li says that if we had a broken toe, we would wait for it to heal before going for a run, so in the same way, it is better to use only leaves from healthy tea bushes.
He also uses a special mulching system in which he takes leaves from local trees, covering the soil around his crops, and then introduces bug life to the soil in order to soften it over time, enriching the soil and making the tea taste more full bodied and deep.
The act of introducing bug life also attracts birds, which in turn eat invasive pests, meaning he does not have to use any pesticides organic or otherwise.
I really believe in what Mr.Li is doing and he is one of the few farms I’m willing to not only do business with, but also advocate for.
Is Mr.Li’s tea of a higher quality than others?
I think so, but why not try it yourself and find out?
