New Release of Da Xue Shan Wild White Tea Cake 2021

[2021.12.06] Posted By

Da Xue Shan Wild White Tea 2021 is available now. This tea is always very popular in our shop.
In Japan, we brought in loose tea this year, and for Malaysia we produced 200g cake.

Very limited resources

This tea is made from the wild tea, called Camelia taliensis. Wild tea means it is not grown by human, and it was found in remote mountain.
Due to the increasing demand on wild tea, it is getting very difficult to secure the genuine wild tea. Basically, it is essential to make a booking in advance. In addition to the advance booking, it is the must that someone stay in their village and follow the villager to collect the wild tea. Otherwise, it will be instantly taken by someone else. Our white tea manufacturer was willing to travel to their village a few times in response to our request. Thanks to those efforts we managed to secure some quantity. Our tea manufacturer brought the fresh tea leaves back to his village and processed it into white tea following the production parameter that we trained them before.

Very less rain makes the yield lower in 2021

In 2021, it was extremely less rain before tea season starts, and the yield of tea has dropped tremendously. It is said that this year the total harvested volume of wild tea was less than 50% of last year. Because of the low yield as well as the increasing demand of wild tea, it became a very stringent competition to grab the fresh tea leaves from the tea pluckers. It is an open market trade, so the tea pluckers will release their collected fresh tea leaves to the person who offered a higher price. Although our tea manufacturer is close with them, still, there was no chance to get the fresh tea leaves at the old price of last year. The price of tea has gone up very high. Therefore, we have no choice but to adjust the selling price.

Flavor that reminds us of fresh grapes

The flavor of the Da Xue Shan Wild Tea is very rich and intense. It reminds us of grapes, herbs and fresh figs, with a mild top note of citrus. It is very enjoyable to drink it now while tea is still fresh. We also enjoy drinking this tea after aging it for a few more years as tea develops a sweet note like raw honey or apricots.

It works very well with cold water brewing

It is also very delicious to brew it with cold water. Since white tea has live enzymes, it has a completely different scent when it is brewed with cold water and hot water. The cold-water brewed wild white tea has a very refreshing flavor with long-lasting sweetish aftertaste.
