Dehong Wild Tree Purple

(2 customer reviews)

Yunnan, China – Spring, 2019
Aromatic and fruity

This wonderful varietal from Yunnan is not only beautiful to look at but also mouth wateringly delicious to drink. Long, twisted deep black and purple leaves harvested exclusively from wild tea trees in the Dehong area give off an amazingly bright and fruity aroma. Yielding a rich reddish brown infusion with sweet flavors of plum and citrus, this black tea has very little of the dry tannins usually associated with strong black tea.

It’s tough to get tea from China these days, so stocks are limited…If you like this tea, we also recommend Organic Assam Golden Tips!

    My preferred daily driver.

    Excellent on all counts.

    I’m with Matt: it’s a daily driver and no matter how long the leaves sit in my tea water, they never give off a bitter taste. Dehong Wild has displaced Yi Mei Ren, another favorite daily brew. The fruitiness is very slight, and it’s not the forward flavor.
