Welcome to the experience of our latest batch of Aged Wild White tea, crafted in spring 2018 using leaves of wild, medium-leaf-size ancient tea trees native to the Duyun region southeast of Guizhou. Embracing traditional methods of "No roasting and no rolling," skilful Buyi women delicately layer the leaves into thin bamboo baskets, withering them alternately in the outdoor and indoor spaces over an attentive 5-day process before they were gently concealed for ageing.
Beyond the classic sweet and fruity notes found in classic White Peony White Teas, our Wild White unveils a Distinctive Fragrance of the Species 品種香: refreshing watermelon peels with a hint of citrus, creating an engaging exploration with every sip.
The journey with this Aged Wild White will likely begin with a sweet, revitalising first infusion. With each subsequent re-brew, discover a gradual transition into a silky mouthfeel and deeper undertones of dry fruits and roasted nuts. After 6-7 re-brews, the tea's medicinal tastes will gradually unfold, known locally as 毫味, the Taste of The Young Leaf's Fluffs, offering you bold antioxidants and nutrients such as amino acids and polyphenols.
It is a seemingly delicate tea that reveals bold energy through time and provides instant mental clarity; it is a perfect companion for moments of slowing down or expanding into a peaceful space. May you find comfort, restoration and upliftment in every cup with Wild White.
