Young smallholder Mr. Yang produces this ye sheng shan cha (lit. 'wild mountain tea') from a reclaimed ecological garden dating back to the early 20th century. Fresh air and beautiful scenery make for a delightful alpine garden escape in Jen-Ai Town, Chingjin. All-organic fertilizer already applied to an already feral garden allows for wondrous, natural sweetness. Some of this harvest is incidentally bitten by leafhopper Jacobiasca formosana—inspiring rhymes of Eastern Beauty nectar. Picked along the mountain, the leaves are transported to the base to be indoor-withered, rolled and dehydrated. Wild Mountain was finished using the Yang's family's proprietary, four-stage high-temperature drying process—enhancing aroma. It is then rested for one year. Notes of fermented cherry, buckwheat honey and pumpkin bread.

This special lot comes with a collectible ceramic jar, a special edition label, and steeping instructions in a gift box. 100 gram refill is for the tea only.
