We released Jasmine Wild White Tea Bud (茉莉野生白芽茶). This is the original tea of HOJO. We made this new tea in 2019. I believe this is the only tea in the world. It was very popular and the stock finished vastly in a short period of time. Now, the 2020 crop is available.
We made the new tea in the world
In our line-up, we have one type of white tea called Wild White Tea Bud. It is made from the buds collected from wild tea trees. It gives very distinctive characteristic. The flavor of Wild White Tea Bud reminiscent of fresh cloves, with full body and long-lasting aftertaste. While I was sourcing this tea in spring, I came up with the idea that this tea could perform well if we process it into jasmine tea. We conducted some experiments and confirmed that this tea matches well with jasmine flavor. So, we sent some of the Wild White Tea Bud to the jasmine scenting factory in Guangxi province, and wait for the jasmine blooming season to conduct scenting process using the fresh jasmine flowers. Only the right quality of flowers freshly collected from the field will be selected for the scenting.
Camellia Assamica Dehongensis
The wild white tea bud belongs to the Camellia Assamica Dehongensis which is the related species of Camellia sinensis. This is found at the altitude of 2000-2400m high mountain in South-West Yunnan, especially in the shrub zone. Although it is called “wild”, a number of wild white tea bud is from the garden. The authentic wild tea gives very long-lasting aftertaste with multi-layers of complex flavor.
