2015 Da Xue Shan Wild Tea Mao-Cha on Sale for a Limited Time

[2015.03.29] Posted By

We have completed the sourcing of one of the important teas, the Da Xue Shan Wild Tea. This is the raw pu-erh tea processed from wild tea spices called Camelia taliensis.

Da Xue Shan 2015 was tailor-made to meet our requirement

Last year, we have had a difficult situation on this tea. We bought this tea processed by a farmer. Despite we carefully inspected the tea, we couldn’t notice that there were scorched tea leaves at the bottom of the cartons and the quality was inconsistent. After we checked all cartons, some of the cartons contain more scorched leaves and it affected the flavour. In the end I had to travel to Yunnan again to look for the alternative batches of tea. Although I have managed to obtain the right quality at last, it was very tough experience. Learning from this mistake, I realized that it is important to source tea in a different way. Usually, tea processed by individual farmer is inconsistent. They do not have sufficient facility, moreover often lack of quality awareness since they scarcely expose to the customers. I realized that having a reliable primary manufacturer who has proper processing technique is a very crucial factor, if we wish to have tea that meets our standard.


We worked with the skilled master in making Wild Pu-erh Tea

This year, we came to Yunnan earlier, before the tea season reaches its peak season. We met a few tea masters, who we knew them well, and have gone through lengthy discussions with them, and requested them to process wild tea following our requirements. We received a few tea samples and based on the quality inspection we requested further improvement in tea processing. After a few rounds of trial, finally I have received the Wild Da Xue Shan raw pu-erh; I am very happy with the outcome. It gives clear flavour that reminds me of the spring forest, with floral note, hint of honey and mild fruity flavour. Most importantly, it was not giving the burnt flavour that often appears in the farmers’ tea.


The colour of leaves is generally brighter and many leaves are remaining with the twigs. I am very satisfied with the outcome.
