The New Arrival of Da Xue Shan Wild White Tea Loose 2023

[2023.09.10] Posted By

We have released the 2023 harvest of wild white tea from the Da Xue Shan.

Fresh Green Colour of Leaves Achieved Through Custom Production

Da Xue Shan’s wild white tea is an incredibly rare type of white tea, and it’s made from a unique plant called Camellia Taliensis that grows in the wild in the deep forest of Yunnan.
For over five years, HOJO has actively participated in guiding our tea producer through each stage of the tea-making process. We offer them precise instructions and share our unique techniques to ensure that the tea is crafted in accordance with our specific requirements.
In the past, finding white tea made from the Camellia Taliensis plant was like discovering a hidden gem. It was so uncommon that you had very few chances to experience it elsewhere.
Now, in recent years, there have been a few instances where white tea made from Camellia Taliensis has popped up here and there. However, the sad reality is that many of these teas have failed to capture the essence of what makes this tea special. Many of those teas didn’t look or taste as good. They often had a darker colour and sometimes even showed signs of browning, which indicated poor processing.
On the contrary, when it comes to our white tea, you can look forward to an extraordinary experience. We meticulously select large, old wild trees from the forest, define precise plucking standards, and closely monitor every detail throughout the withering process. Even during the pandemic period, we continued our vigilance, using movies or photos on our phones for monitoring. This ensures that our white tea maintains its natural substances and freshness to the fullest extent. Our tea retains its vibrant green colour and boasts a wonderfully fresh aroma that is certain to delight your senses. As mentioned earlier, it is not common to come across white tea with such a fresh green colour and aroma, and some individuals might find it unusual. However, this serves as a testament to the meticulous care and unique techniques we have employed in crafting this exceptional tea.
When the white tea is expertly crafted, it will display a revitalizing, fresh green and grassy flavor. Interestingly, when the tea remains sealed in its bag for a year or two without being opened, this initially vibrant green note transforms into a delightful sweetness reminiscent of wild raw honey or grapes, with a clear and sweetish lingering finishing that lasts for many brewing.

Wild Tea Becoming Increasingly Difficult to Obtain

Amidst prevailing mistrust in the real estate sector, China’s domestic economy is currently experiencing a period of deceleration. Interestingly, the tea industry in Yunnan Province has remained relatively insulated from these market fluctuations. The demand for tea, particularly wild tea, has been steadily increasing in recent years, resulting in elevated prices and intensified competition among suppliers.
To ensure a consistent supply of raw materials, we have established direct partnerships with local farmers through reputable producers. This strategic approach enables us to procure wild tea directly every year.

Aromas Like Shine Muscat Grapes and Guava

The Da Xue Shan Wild Tea of this year offers a finish that envelops your senses in a refreshing green aroma. It presents a unique flavor profile reminiscent of Shine Muscat grapes, complemented by subtle notes of guava and green apples.
Beyond its captivating flavor, this tea leaves a lingering and gratifying aftertaste, elevating it to a truly enriching and rewarding tea-drinking experience.

Great Affinity with Cold Water Brewing

Da Xue Shan Wild White Tea can be enjoyed through cold brewing. We often savor this tea using the cold-water brewing method. The carefully crafted white tea imparts a fascinating, refreshing tea flavor, which I often liken to the experience of sipping tea as if it were a rejuvenating tea juice. This tea contains active enzymes, which are activated during tea brewing due to the rise in temperature. This results in white tea undergoing further enzymatic oxidation, which imparts a mature flavor when brewed with hot water. On the contrary, cold water brewing keeps the enzymes inactivated thanks to the cold temperature. This allows us to truly enjoy the constituents of fresh white tea.
To do this, it’s advisable to allow previously boiled water to cool down. This cooling process alters the water’s characteristics and enriches the tea’s aroma.
To prepare approximately 1 litre of cold-brewed tea, use roughly 5g of tea leaves. Allow them to steep in the refrigerator overnight to complete the cold brewing process. After steeping, removing the tea leaves is essential to maintain the tea’s freshness and elevate the overall flavor, ensuring an optimal and delightful taste experience.
