ABOUT TIAN YU
Menglian is a remote town of Yunnan, only several kilometres away from the border between China and Myanmar. You can actually see the mountains in Myanmar when you standing on top of the mountains in Menglian.
Tian Yu Cooperatives is in a tiny village Mang Mao hidden in a corner of Menglian. It has the most beautiful and tranquil morning. Outside of the village, there are endless coffee and tea fields. These are the major income source of local villagers.
Ping is the owner and the head producer at Cooperatives. The producing farm is actually named after her son Tian Yu.
To produce this Natural Catimor, Ping always picks the plots that grow the best and sweetest cherries. She monitors the drying status 24/7 for few weeks according to the weather and condition of cherries. She can always find the right timing. She knows everything about the mountain - the water, the soil, and trees and the coffee.
