New Release of Wild Pu-erh Jasmine Pearl

[2024.05.30] Posted By


Out of curiosity, we decided to create a jasmine tea based on Da Xue Shan Wild Raw Tea. This resulted in an exceptionally rare tea, not only in Japan but also in China.

Custom Production Network for Jasmine Tea

At our store, we source various types of base teas from different regions during the spring. These teas are then transported to a jasmine tea production factory in Guangxi Region for the scenting process. Thanks to this unique supply chain, we have the advantage of being able to process any type of tea we source into jasmine tea. Using our own original ingredients, we have developed many original jasmine teas, including Pu-erh raw tea, wild white bud tea, ripe Pu-erh tea, Jasmine Silver Needle, and Snow Jasmine.

Using Da Xue Shan Wild Tea as the Base

Driven by intense curiosity, we decided to create a jasmine tea using wild Pu-erh raw tea and undertook a custom production process.

Wild tea is completely different from commonly cultivated teas, naturally farmed teas, abandoned teas, or ancient tree teas from tea gardens. This tea grows entirely on its own in the mountains, without any human intervention, making it a purely natural tea. Like natural seafood or wild herbs, it takes time to grow slowly in nature, resulting in exceptional quality as a raw material.

The raw material we used is our own “Da Xue Shan Wild Tea,” made from the species Camellia taliensis. The tea we are generally familiar with is made from the species Camellia sinensis (where “Camellia” refers to the genus and “sinensis” to the species). Taliensis is closely related to the sinensis species.

Camellia taliensis tea has a unique aroma reminiscent of grapes and young tree bark.

One of the most distinctive features of this wild tea is its intense and lingering aftertaste, reminiscent of wild mountain vegetables. Additionally, the tea has a notably thick body, characteristic of Camellia taliensis, making its flavor truly unique. Unsurprisingly, our Da Xue Shan Wild Tea is also a highly popular Pu-erh raw tea in our store.

In my experience, I have never seen or heard of this tea being processed into jasmine tea. Wild teas are already rare and difficult to obtain, and wild Pu-erh raw tea is particularly popular. Therefore, processing it into jasmine tea is unprecedented, not only in Japan and Malaysia, but also in China.

The Labor-Intensive Supply Chain Management for Custom Jasmine Tea Production

After sourcing Da Xue Shan Wild Tea from producers in Yunnan Province in March, the tea is first sent to Fujian Province for processing, where it is rolled into pearl shapes. Since the taliensis speciees produces large and thick tea leaves, the rolled pearls resemble South Sea black pearls in appearance.

These pearl-shaped tea leaves are then transferred to Guangxi Region, where they undergo the scenting process with high-quality jasmine flowers in the early autumn when the flowers bloom.

 

Please note that production quantities are limited, so this tea will only be available while supplies last.
