An extraordinary black tea, harvested from wild tea trees (Yesheng) in the subtropical jungles of Yunnan. The wild arbor leaves have purplish color and give an incredible rich complexity to the tea, with a long, savory aftertaste. Drinking it we experience the wisdom of the old trees. Firstly, we bought a small batch of this outstanding tea in 2016, but since then they can’t do this due to the harsh weather conditions.

This year they make incredible Yesheng Hong which is a ‘dan zhu’ (单株), thus coming from one single tree. The harvest resulted in 14 kg of ready tea. Due to rainy weather, the tea was produced with traditional methods, which brings darker, more oxidized notes, closer to a classic black tea.
