Wild Cultivar Oolong 

One of the strangest teas we have on offer right now, this wild cultivar tea is sourced from cultivated wild tea plants brought down from the mountains of south-eastern Taiwan. Huge leaves and a sugarcane sweetness are the strongest markers for this unique tea. An amazing learning experience to be able to taste tea made from wild tea stock, but may not be a daily drinker for everyone.

Worth Trying!

Sweet, a little bitter in the second steeping, vegetal, and a bit of caramel -huge leaves. I love this for the tasting experience. It’s not heavy at all and has a nice color in the cup.

a wild jungle experience

This tea is really one to write about!
Although it is maybe not a tea for everyone, it is one of my favorites. Why?
Imagine you wake up in the early morning in the middle of the jungle. The sun is shining and when you take a deep breath you smell all kind of plants and vegetables, behind this all a little sweet touch. Following a small road in the jungle you get deeper aroma’s and stronger scents. Veggies and honey? scents and tastes of wilderness…. and when you watch the horizon there is a faint but recognizable taste of fresh oolong.

Excellent Tea

Delicate, exotic, satisfying, and delicious!

Lovely! Strange and complex

Definitely unlike all other oolongs I've ever had. It's difficult to describe, but the taste is both sweet and bitter, reminiscent of grass. A slight bit of sugar helps bring out the underlying flavors. Make sure you use a large infuser or gaiwan!!

Strong stuff

I did not think I would like it, after watching Matt's video ! But ... this is a unique tea, definitely oolong but much stronger. Strong! I taste caramel in the first steep. To me, less floral than the Li Shan Oolong. I will enjoy this tea for variety.
