Yunnan Wild Tea Buds |  雲南野生芽苞

Tasting notes: Round, light, floral

These unopened, purple-ish buds from Puerh trees in Yunnan, China are a rare, precious gift from mother nature. They are harvested from wild thousand-year-old Puerh tea trees of a purple-leaf varietal that grows natively in the region. The tea has a soft, round nature with an hauntingly floral fragrance, making it almost like a tisane with virtually no caffeine. 

Yunnan Wild Tea Buds are harvested only once a year in small batches, due to the rarity and unpredictable yield of wild trees. The tea buds are dried naturally with minimal processing to preserve their pink hue and natural floral flavour.

A huge surprise to us here at Plantation when we first discovered them, these tea buds have since become one of our bestsellers and a true rare gem.

We recommend you try brewing Yunnan Wild Tea Buds at a range of temperatures. At 85°C, the tea tastes lighter and more nuanced. At 90°C it becomes more heady and floral.

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.
