Description:

This tea is collected from ancient, wild trees on Wuliang mountain. These are truely wild trees, that haven't been planted by humans and average around 800-1000 years old. The leaves naturally have honey like characteristics in the taste and aroma, which lends them very well to being made into hongcha (Red/Black tea).

I find it difficult to get excited by many hongcha - the oxidisation often seems to mute many of the characteristics of teas that I find most enjoyable. This one is something special though - it has strong qi, it is thick and very smooth, and it is very enjoyable to drink.

Wild tea

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Leaves are brownish-black in colour and are pretty long, some up to 3 cm. Tea scent is delicate.

Wet leaves have very strong sweet smell after overripe berries. I cannot wait to taste it :)

Colour of the infusion is brown like toffee.

Taste of first infusion is slightly sweet, fruity. There is a very pleasant astringency which stimulates salivation in the aftertaste. The second infusion is sweet again. Strong wild astringency remains on the tongue. The astringency is not unpleasant. It has a very specific - forest flavour. After a while the astringency disappears and remains the taste of sweet berries. The energy of the tea is warming my face.

The first four infusions were the best. It is an exceptional red tea baked very carefully which preserved his “wild” taste.


5 g per 170 ml, water 99°C - 25s, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60

Sweetish taste, forest fruits, scent of fir-needles. Wild tea. You can feel that it is made of wild tea trees. There is a taste of wild herbs and forest fruits. Rinsed leaves smell after spices, cardamom.

Quotes - Red tea


„hong; 红 - red. In China, what is called black tea in the English speaking world, is called red. Cooked Puer is sometimes mistakenly referred to as a black tea.“

Quotes

„Fragrance
Broad leaf variety old tree tea aromas can generally be divided into the following;

fruit-flower fragrance, honey-flower fragrance , honey-sweet fragrance, date-jujube fragrance, orchid flower fragrance , camphor fragrance, sticky rice fragrance , lotus flower fragrance , mellow-aged fragrance

Some teas are highly fragrant, others have refined and prolonged fragrance. Although there are many different kinds of fragrance, they should all be natural, smooth and easy to get a feeling for. These fragrances appear when the tea is drunk and are not evident when smelling the tea.“
