Description

Order the 2018 “dark & wild” edition. The perfect contrast to “White & wild

This dark tea comes from an old cultivar planted years ago in the mountains around Gaoxiong. Some of the trees date back 100years, on average around 20-30 years though. The trees are standing completely left alone within a forest in Bao Mountain at around 1200m. No pesticides, no fertilizer, no pruning.  The leaves from these trees are only harvest once per year in Spring by the owners – aboriginal Bunun people. Then Mr. Liu is making this very unique and natural product with very little processing . To learn more about Taiwanese wild tea, we recommend to have a look at https://vimeo.com/131620469.

Good for drinking and storing. The tea was harvested early April 2018 and is now being processed to dark tea by Mr. Liu’s father. The tea coop is working on a very small scale together with the local aboriginals. What we found fascinating is, how much they are committed to make something next to the Taiwanese mainstream of perfect rolled Oolong tea.
