The growth environment of Jinjunmei tea

Last Updated On November 23, 2018

Jin Junmei, in line with Zhengshan Xiaozhong. We mentioned Jin Junmei, which is bound to be locked in the Wuyishan Tongmu Nature Reserve in Wuyi Mountain.

Tongmuguan is one of the eight major gates of Wuyi Mountain and the core of the Wuyishan National Nature Reserve. Tongmuguan has a good ecological environment and has the reputation of “bird paradise”, “snake kingdom”, “insect world” and “opening the key to the species biological gene pool”.

As the birthplace of the world’s black tea, Tongmu is the fracture of the Wuyi Mountain Range. The average altitude is above 1,100 meters, and its forest coverage rate is 96.3%. It is known as the “Window of World Biology”.

How big is the ecological significance here? Many tea friends may not know much about it, but many Western biologists and botanists have come to collect specimens more than a hundred years ago.

In order to better protect this treasure, Tongmu and its surrounding areas were designated as national nature reserves in 1979. In 1987, it became the UNESCO “Man and Biosphere” protected area. In 1999, it was listed as “World Natural and Cultural Heritage”.

Jinjunmei tea environment

Nowadays, this treasure land is well protected. In and out of the protected area, it is subject to strict checkpoint inspection. The original residents in the non-protected area cannot enter and leave at will.

Huanggang Mountain, the main mountain peak in Tongmu, the northern part of the north is cold, the south is warm to the ocean, and the natural climate is unique.

These superior natural climates and geographical environments have created unique ecological conditions for Jinjunmei Black Tea.

The origin of the world’s black tea, the world’s cultural and natural heritage sites, the Wuyishan National Key Nature Reserve, the original ecological mountain of 565 square kilometers.

1200 meters
The average elevation is 1200~1500 meters, which is warm in winter and cool in summer, forming an obvious microclimate environment. The temperature difference between day and night is large. The photosynthesis of white tea trees is strong, and there are many synthetic organic substances. The nighttime breathing is weak and nutrient consumption is low.
Jinjunmei grows in such an alpine ecological environment, and its taste is fresh and fresh, and the degree of foam resistance is high. The alcoholity and freshness of the tea soup form a unique “alpine rhyme”.

120 days
120 days of average foggy day, the air humidity is large. There are many diffuse light and short-wave ultraviolet light, and the leaves are rich in materials, high in free amino acids and aromatic substances, and low in cellulose content.
The Wuyishan National Nature Reserve is rich in vegetation, with a forest coverage rate of 96.3%. There are many diffuse and short-wave ultraviolet light in Chashan, and the leaves are rich in materials.

The annual average temperature of 11~18°C is rich in amino acids, protein and nitrogenous compounds. The taste of tea is fresh and fresh, and the degree of foam resistance is high.

The average annual precipitation of about 2000 mm is mainly concentrated in the period of March-October, where the tea is vigorously growing, and the average humidity is 80%. The tea has good tenderness and excellent quality.

The pH value of 4.5~5 soil is acidic. The content of aluminum ion and active calcium meets the growth requirements of tea trees, which provides an excellent soil environment for tea tree growth.

The soil thickness of 30~90 cm, the soil is loose, the drainage performance is good, the soil has high natural fertility, and no chemical fertilizer is needed.
