Wild Tree, High Altitude Purple Leafed Red Tea from Feng Qing, Lincang
Wild Tree, High Altitude- Purple Leafed Red Tea from Feng Qing, Lincang Province.
This is by far, one of our most favourite teas. This expertly fermented black tea uses a tree varietal that grows wild in the mountainous areas west of Feng Qing township near the Da Si village at an altitude of 2000-2200 meters. This is a wonderfully rich tea abundant with Qi and information, who's potency arises from it's unadulterated purity and wild nature.
Ye Sheng "野生“ varietal aka "Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze var. assamica (J. Masters) Kitam." is a primeval varietal that pre-dates Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica and is a naturally occuring non hybridized varietal.
A very lightly wilted and processed tea, the green in the leaves remains and the tea liquor is a golden yellow colour. There is a hint of fruit, chocolate and barrel aged rum in the taste and aroma. An exquisite experience!
An incredibly rare tea, only 60 kilograms in total production! This is quintessential tea as medicine.
