The first mention of this variety of tea appeared almost 2,000 years ago in southern China, and then it was called - Gaol (broad-leaved tea) and it was only used for medicinal purposes. Only wealthy Chinese could afford to drink this drink because it was considered to be expensive and rare.

Despite the fact that today it is called Kuding tea, in fact, it is not tea, because it does not come out of the tea bush, but from the leaves of one of the species of broadleaf holly. Kuding is collected mainly in the southern regions of China: on the slopes, in canyons and belts.

The appearance of the dry tea is not too attractive: dark leaves, twisted into a tube and a bit shriveled. But do not let that bother you!
