Wild Gushu Black Tea|野生古樹紅茶

 Tasting notes: Malty, baked fruit, sweet potato
 Origin: Lincang, Yunnan, China
 Cultivar: 野生雲南大葉 Yesheng Yunnan Daye (Wild Big Leaf)

 Elevation: 2000m
 Oxidation: ⦿⦿⦿⦿⦿

Harvested from wild 300-year-old tea trees, this rare black tea is highly aromatic and fruity with distinctive notes of plum. We even get a hint of baked sweet potato with this harvest! 

Grown at high altitudes in Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan, this wild tea is only harvested once a year in spring in very small batches that are always sold out within the same year. Due to the untamed nature of these plants, each harvest is unpredictable and produces slightly different flavour profiles every year. 

This tea was developed as part of a recent trend in Yunnan of making black teas from large-leaf assamica cultivars—traditionally reserved for Puerh tea—generating some very interesting flavours.

While black tea is often brewed with boiling water, we find that the complex fruity notes of Wild Gushu Black Tea are enhanced with temperatures just under boiling.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
