野生のプーアル茶、野生春芽

Wild Spring Bud raw pu-erh: it is the loose tea buds harvested from the wild tree at Da Xue Shan area. 

The native tea collected from the mountain

The Wild Spring Bud is literally the wild tea that is naturally grown in the native forest. It is not referring to the tea tree that age is like 500 years old or 1000 years old. The wild tea means native plant in the forest.
Our wild spring bud is harvested from Da Xue Shan area in Lincang city. The tea processed from the first flush of young buds plucked in March is named as Wild Spring Bud and the tea processed from 1 bud and 2 leaves is named as Da Xue Shan Wild Tea.

Wild Tea Trees at Wu Liang Shan

Da Xue Shan, Wu Laing Shan and Ai Lao Shan, the major production area of Wild Tea

The wild tea exists not only in Da Xue Shan but also in Wu Liang Shan and Ai Lao Shan, and some are found at the border to Myanmar. As far as I have experienced, generally the wild tea from Wu Liang Shan gives lighter taste in terms of body and after taste and the one from Ai Lao Shan gives the least after taste with slight bitterness. As for the wild tea from Da Xue Shan, it gives strongest after taste and body in general. However, some of the Da Xue Shan wild tea gives bitter taste too. We selected the tea that gives no bitterness.

Camellia Taliensis

In fact, there are many types of wild tea available in Yunnan. The wild tea is not only the tea made from Camellia sinensis but also it consists of a few other sub-species of Camellia sinensis. For example, the Da Xue Shan Wild Tea and Wild Spring Bud are made from the Camellia taliensis, which is said to be the closest species of Camellia sinensis. The Camellia taliensis is often recognized as the wild tea, and also it is found in the tea garden especially near the Myanmar border. I also saw a number of Camellia taliensis planted in the tea garden when I visited Myanmar before. The tea made from Camellia taliensis was traditionally drunk by the minority people.

カメリアタリエンシス

I saw the tree of Camellia taliensis when I visited the village in Lincang. These tea trees already involve human care and it should not be called as the wild tea.

Clear fruity flavor

The flavor of the Wild Spring Bud is very sweet and clear that reminds us of grapes or green apple. The body of this tea is moderate since it only consists of the spring buds. Instead, it gives a very clear and transparency flavor with lingering sweetish taste on our palate for a long time after drinking.
