"Wild Lands" Feng Qing Ye Sheng Hong Cha Wild Tree Purple Black Tea
A lightly wilted and processed tea, the green in the leaves is still present and the tea's soup is a golden yellow color. There is hints of fruit, chocolate, wildflowers, and barrel aged rum in the flavor and aroma. This is an incredibly rare tea, only 70 kilograms in total production! This expertly fermented black tea was crafted using a wild tree purple leaf varietal from Feng Qing area of Lincang prefecture. This varietal is of primeval origin that pre-dates Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica and is a naturally occurring non-hybridized varietal. Its potency in cha qi arises from its unadulterated nature and grows wild in the forests of Yunnan at an altitude of 1600-2200 meters.
