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

'Huangshan', or 'Remote Mountain', refers to material found growing intermittently in hard-to-penetrate forest. It requires a knowledge of the forest, as well as a significant amount of time and effort to procure. As Yimu's father is the village herbalist and has spent a significant amount of time sourcing wild plants, he is particularly fond of this material. In the past, we have added what little amounts we produced to our 'Feral Nature'. This year we have produced a 100% 'Huangshan' cake.

These are individual trees rather than tea gardens, which means lower competition for mineral uptake. Forest tends to be much denser than typical tea gardens, and these trees generally produce only once a year in the late spring. Leaf sets are long as they reach for dappled light penetrating the forest canopy.
