Wild Tree Purple Black


4 in stock


This is fermented black tea was crafted using a wild tree purple leaf varietal from Feng Qing area of Lincang prefecture. This wild tree varietal grows wild in the mountainous areas west Feng Qing township near the Da Si village at an altitude of 2000-2200 meters.

This tea is a primeval varietal that pre-dates Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica and is a naturally occurring non-hybridized varietal. It is naturally bug repellent, grows wild in the forests of Yunnan at an altitude of 1600-2200 meters.

A very lightly wilted and processed tea, the green in the leaves is still present and the liquor is a golden yellow color. There is a hint of fruit, chocolate and barrel-aged rum in the taste and aroma. An incredibly rare tea, only 60 kilograms in total production. I have only 8 one ounce bags.

Steeping Suggestions:

8 ounces of water
