Wild Black Tea is made from a rare wild tea called camellia taliensis.

When we mentioned “wild tea”, many people may think it is from the tea tree left unattended and grown like wild plants in nature. In fact, some people simply named these kinds of tea as wild tea. For us, it is not categorized as wild tea. We will just call it as natural farming tea or semi-wild tea. Precisely, the wild tea means it is not planted by the human, but naturally grown in the mountain of native forest. Those wild teas are collected only once in spring by the farmer who lives nearby the mountain.

Tea leaves are collected from older trees

As I explained in my previous article, this year we managed to collect the fresh tea leaves 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.

This wild black tea gives a sweet note that reminds me of raw honey or Botrytis wine. Its sweetish taste lingers down the throat for a long time, and no bitter or astringent taste at all.

Tea can be aged for many years

If you wish to develop stronger flavor on tea, please keep the packed tea unopened and keep it under the warm environment. If you happen to keep it for more than a few years, you may experience more matured and intense flavor. Since this tea is very rich in minerals, it will mature well during long storage period.
