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  (Wild Yunnan Big Leaf)

 Elevation: 2000m
 Oxidation: ⦿⦿⦿⦿⦿

Harvested in small batches from 300-year-old wild tea trees , this rare black tea is sweet and fruity with distinctive notes of baked plum.

Why we love it

  • It has complex layours of flavour: Due to the age of the trees and the altitude at which they grow, this tea has interesting layers. We even get a hint of steamed sweet potato with this harvest! 
  • It's wild: The ancient trees in Mengku, Lincang, Yunnan grow in a biodiverse environment with minimal human intervention. 
  • It's rare: This wild tea is only harvested once a year in spring in small batches that are always sold out within the same year. 
  • It varies: Due to the untamed nature of these plants, each harvest is unpredictable and produces slightly different flavour profiles every year. 

("Gushu" means "ancient tree" and refers to tea trees that are more than 200 years old.)
