When the term "wild tea" is mentioned, many individuals may associate it with tea trees growing freely in nature, resembling wild plants. However, we do not classify such teas as wild tea. Instead, we refer to them as natural farming tea or semi-wild tea. The true essence of wild tea lies in its natural growth within the mountains of native forests, untouched by human hands. These wild teas are carefully collected once during the spring season by villagers residing in the vicinity of the mountains.
Tea leaves are collected from older trees
This wild tea is made from the fresh tea leaves collected from much older tea tree. As a result, the base quality is improved and it gives quite different characteristic compared to the same tea we introduced in previous years.
There is a common misconception that tea harvested from older tea trees will possess a stronger flavor compared to that from younger trees. However, the age of the tree does not necessarily correlate with a stronger flavor or aroma. In reality, tea leaves collected from older trees tend to offer a softer taste and a more distinct drinking experience.
As for this particular wild black tea, it delights the palate with a sweet note reminiscent of raw honey or Botrytis wine. The pleasant sweetness lingers on the palate, leaving a lasting impression, while no traces of bitterness or astringency can be detected.
Tea can be aged for many years
When discussing aged teas, many people are well-acquainted with the concept of aged pu-erh tea. However, it is lesser known that black tea can also age exceptionally well.
