On both sides of the Nasai Highway are rattan tea plantations(藤条茶园) planted before 1965. The Nasai village is an ancient Lahu ethnic village. Most of the oldest and largest ancient tea gardens in Nasai are here. There are more than 80 families in the village, 90% of them are Lahu people. The ancient post road from Mengkuba to Boshan and Lincang passes through the village. On both sides of the old road, there are hundreds of ancient tea gardens. Many ancient tea trees are more than 80 centimeters in circumference, which was planted by Lahu people, before Han people moved here.

Zhengqi Tang(正气塘) is a Han village on the top of a small village. There are more than 30 families in Zhengqi Tang. Zhengqi Tang used to be inhabited by Lahu people, and now dozens of acres of tea plantations are planted by Lahu people. The trunk of tea trees has grown thicker than the mouth of the big bowl. In 1903, the Lahu people moved away and the Han people planted tea trees.
Zhengqi Tang is very convenient for people to sell tea. They can walk from Zhengqi Tang to Boshang Street(博尚街) for three hours. If they don’t want to go to Boshang(博尚), they can put the tea at the door and buy it when there are horse bands.

Nasai Dazhai is crossed by an ancient road, dividing the Dazhai into two stockades, Shangzhai(上寨) above the ancient road and Xiazhai (下寨) below, both of which are Han stockades. The old tea trees in Nasai Dazhai are scattered along the ancient road, planted by the Han people in the early years of the Republic of China(民国初年).
Since the 1980s, the Nasai Village Committee(那赛村委会) has planted more than 2,000 Mu high-yielding tea plantations. The Han people have also set up small tea processing factories in Nasai, and the products are popular everywhere.

那赛茶区在勐库东半山的位置相当重要,其四面八方都是古茶村落,距勐库镇20公里,距双江县41公里,东与临沧为邻,南与亥公为伴,邦读在西,坝糯居北,从整体的格局上来说,那赛算得上东半山的中心!
沿着亥公茶区的东弄大寨一路前行5公里便能陆陆续续能看到藤条茶了,而在勐库,在我的定义里面,有藤条茶的地方才叫东半山!而一路走来看到的这些藤条茶,就是那赛茶区的茶园了!
那赛往上走便是小村,小村之上是正气塘,那赛主要以汉族为主,小村中有相对较多的拉祜族人!

那赛村茶林简介
从东弄到那赛这一路上都密密麻麻的栽种着茶树,这些茶树大都为藤条茶,而这些藤条茶园约莫有50年了。另外,从那赛到小村这一路上也分散这不少老茶树,从树形上也能分辨出其室藤条茶,当然,这些藤条茶比小村的拉祜族寨中的古刹回溯要小一些,应该是汉人们再民国初年种下的!

那赛村委会在上个世纪80年代以后新种了2000多亩高产茶园,白花树村是新茶园最多的寨子。现在白花树村、小村都有茶叶初制所,那寨董家的后人依然情系于茶,在那赛办了一个茶叶加工厂,其产品在昆明颇受欢迎。

勐库东半山:那赛茶区普洱茶特点
那赛茶区是勐库东半山当中的名气与坝糯不相上下,那赛茶区所管辖的三个自然村分别是小村,正气塘,和那赛大寨,其中正气塘在小村之上,海拔最高品,约1800-2000米;小村居中,而那赛大寨在小村之下,海拔最低!
勐库东半山的茶大多古茶树都为藤条茶,而那赛茶区的藤条茶与坝糯相比,条索的肥壮程度基本相似,而茶的整体口感在东半山当中算是拔尖的,这一点从丰富的内含和金黄的汤色当中可以得到有力的证明。
那赛茶区所产古树有着勐库东半山古树的共性,其向阳而生,故苦重而涩轻,质醇而香扬;这一点春茶尤为明显。其茶条索紧结显毫,汤亮色金黄,香气强烈特久,生津回甘佳,经久耐泡。但由于那赛茶区海拔相对较高,故而除了汤质充满阳刚之气外,香气浓郁、口感丰富、气足韵长,也是东半山当中其他茶不能比拟的!

那赛茶属于藤条茶,也是优质的勐库大叶种,标准的云南普洱茶!那赛古树茶茶汤入口,甜度和饱满度充溢着口腔,而下咽之后口腔和鼻腔当中会有淡淡的花香,令人心情舒畅,甜浓而不腻,饮后令人心情愉悦!

那赛大寨、小村、以及正气塘虽然同属那赛茶区,但由于海拔不同,树龄不同,茶的口感差距也稍有不同,相比于其他两寨,小村寨内大都为拉祜族,其中古茶树无论从树龄、口感、茶质都相对较好,其次应该算有“小冰岛”之称的正气塘,其茶茶质鲜美,茶气劲扬!下面是对小村、正气塘、那赛的口感分析:

小村:那赛小村入口柔顺,入口微涩,而后瞬间划开,入口顺滑,而后回甘生津,次第分明,且茶汤粘稠度高,挂杯明显!

正气塘:正气塘平均海拔2000米,有“小冰岛”之称的正气塘茶汤金黄厚实,干净明亮,茶香气劲扬,花香独特,汤质充满刚阳之气,汤感厚实,滋味饱满,汤香甘甜质厚,茶气强烈,气足韵长,喉韵深远,回甘绵绵不绝,冲泡后口腔持续保留冰糖的蜜香!

那赛大寨:那赛大寨所产的古树茶带着典型的东半山特质,比之正气塘茶气相对较弱,比之小村,汤感粘稠度相对较低,茶汤香气明显,香扬水柔!
