Description of tree species
Rocky tea (Adinandra nitida) is a species of genus of Adinandra, which grows as tree or shrub. For reason of growing on rocky cliffs this species is named ¡°rocky tea.¡± The bud leaf is fat and thick, and its infusion is bright and brilliant. Wild rocky tea is of high value, because it grows on rocky mountain with short sunshine duration and large temperature difference between day and night. Local people say that wild rocky tea absorbs heaven and earth aura and essence of sun and moon. The extremely specific environment makes rocky tea a unique natural beverage. In ancient time people trained monkey for leaves collection. The infusion made by the rocky tea leaves collected by monkey were of highest value with a name of ¡°Fairy Tea¡± and ¡°Monkey Tea.¡±The analysis shows that rocky tea has no content of caffeine; therefore drinking it does not affect sleep. Moreover, rocky tea is good for human health, because it contains flavonoids. Establishment of large scale rocky tea plantation provides to local farmers important income in favor of stable and sustainable economic development.
