No 'Feral Nature' this year? Even I was surprised when Yimu told me. How could we not produce one of our signature teas? There is only one way and that is to improve upon it.

Huangshan, or 'remote mountain', refers to true forest tea, individual trees located intermittently throughout the mountains. Procuring this leaf requires time, effort, and a substantial knowledge of place. In his role as village herbalist, Yimu's father spends a significant amount of time sourcing wild plants and is particularly fond of locating this material. In the past, we have added what little amounts we produced to our 'Feral Nature'. This year we offer a 100% 'Huangshan' cake.

The forested growing environment's dense canopy allows limited light penetration. Consequently, these trees generally produce only once a year in the late spring. Pristine ecological conditions and mineral rich soils lend themselves to a truly special drinking experience. Beautiful yellow liquor and exceptional vegetal character express throughout multiple infusions. With a steady brewing hand, you will find delicate hints of orchid. Pu'er fragrance is not ostentatious, but invites discovery.
