Yunnan Feng Qing Wild Ancient Tree Ye Sheng Gushu Black Tea (野生古树红茶）
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 puerh black 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. Although processed as black tea, but the tea is not completely oxidized, like pu'erh tea it also ages well. 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 a dozen steepings!
