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.

Excellent Tea

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.

Unique

There is a depth and spiciness to this tea from the first infusion that is later complimented by high florality as the steeps continue. An unexpected and unique experience.

What a "wildly entertaining ride"....!

Well, THIS one popped up out of "nowhere" and was fascinating ! It has an exotic "distant" flavor profile that is like eating vegetables that haven't been "domesticated "---even a remote hint of mild celery--"wild celery?", maybe...everything that you would associate with a cultivated oolong is vaguely there, but fleeting..."go figure!"LOL
