Yunnan Wild Ye Sheng Ancient Tree Black Tea
This tea is from Feng Qing, the core-producing region of Yunnan black tea (Dian Hong). Feng Qing has a long history of producing the finest Dian Hong. Feng Qing has some very old ancient wild tea trees that can produce either puerh tea or black tea. Wild tea trees are different from the traditional Yunnan Da Ye camillia varietal, including both the dry leaves and the taste profile.
This wild tea is produced from gushu leaves, plucked from very old ancient trees growing in the wild, and in high mountains with an elevation of more than 2000 meters. They are the most natural, organically grown trees. It typically yields a very distinct flavor and delicate taste. The dry leaves are dark, with no golden downy buds, and a strong floral sweet aroma. When brewed, it produces a gold-yellowish liquor. It is aromatic, very fruity and sweet, has "Huigan", a smooth and sweet aftertaste. If gongfu tea brewing is used, this tea is good for as many as 14 steepings! It is very rare to find a black tea of this quality.
