The Yuan Bao Zi Tea Company was founded in Kunming in 2008 by several enthusiasts who were fascinated by ancient tea trees. They select only old tea trees which are over 200 years old with at least a 30cm diameter to produce their tea. The company adheres to traditional craftsmanship and specialises in the production of ancient tree tea with unique mountain charm.

The tea garden is a naturally farmed tea garden/forest where the tea trees are grown as a part of the surrounding ecology and it is independent from human involvement. The tea trees are planted in the forest randomly and mixed with other wild plants and the soil is totally covered with fern plants. Tea grows very slowly due to no fertiliser. As a result, tea will accumulate higher concentration of minerals and polyphenols. It gives very long lasting aftertaste, soft drinking feeling and stronger flavour. The naturally farmed tea gives another dimension of tasting experience.
