2018 Eot Wuliang Wild
We really like the character of the ancient wild (non-camellia sinensis var assamica) trees in this area of Wuliang mountains & early this year we commissioned a farmer to oversee the picking of this tea and for him to process the fresh leaves. These ancient wild trees only flush once a year & their energy is concentrated in their spring leaves.
The character of wild tea is different from cultivated tea - with a flavour that seems light at first taste but swells up in in body and taste throughout the infusions. The qi is very deep, also beginning in a subtle manner but creeping up as you drink it.
This is a very nice wild tea. It's clean, smooth and powerful.
Note: This is not standard Camellia Sinensis vs Assamica, but from wild tea tree varietals that grow in the forest
