This rare black tea is a special order I made two years ago for our tea shop. The tea is made using leaves from wild ancient tea trees that are over 500 years old. These tree leaves are traditionally used for making Puerh. We have been searching for premium quality black tea from real wild tea trees for many years and we are so excited to introduce this remarkable black tea to our customers and tea friends after two years of search/anticipation.
This wild black tea is harvested in the early spring with a bud and two leaves. The dry leaves are in brown colour with golden tips. It has a very distinctive and mesmerising floral and fruity aroma with wild forest flavours and a strong Qi. The tea liquid is thick. The taste is sweet and complex with a faint and pleasant astringency and a cooling citrus after taste that lingers for a long time in your mouth.
This is a premium Yunnan black tea. Created with leaves which have been carefully picked from the same ancient Chinese tea trees, that all Yunnan Village teas are sourced from. The pedigree of these trees dates back up to 3,200 years, creating unique flavours in our range of organic teas. The large black twisted leaves of our Wild Organic Black Tea, offers the drinker a full bodied Yunnan brew.
Copper in colour, producing earthy aromas, with a background of peach and candy. The taste is smooth, almost woody with hints of fruit and malt but with a really gentle astringency. A perfect tea for any time of the day, especial with food or nibbles. Only these ancient trees and the red soils of Yunnan, can produce such a brew.
