Yunnan Honey Green was first developed in a trial batch in 2017 by the artisans at the Wa Shan Ecological Tea Garden in the southwestern region of Cangyuan in China's Yunnan province. This particular region, along the border with Myanmar, has a lush microclimate. The local Wa ethnic people who farm these gardens promote biodiversity and ecological balance by preserving swathes of shade trees and original forestry throughout the gardens. The artisans who make this tea borrow a technique from the early stages of oolong tea processing called Yaoqing (tumbling) to subtly bruise the tea and coax out sweet floral aromas.
