Wild Purple Shoots 2020 Second Harvest
This tea is made by Mr. Wang. Mr. Wang’s tea garden is situated high up on the ancient Guzhu Mountain, accessible by foot only, through dense bamboo forests. Guzhu Mountain is breathtaking; the climate is ideal for tea plants as fog from the nearby Taihu (Lake Tai) nurtures them.
The tea plants are grown without human intervention, scattered among rocks, where orchids and bamboo plants are abundant. The purple leaves are handpicked after the first rain of the season and slowly roasted over charcoal.
This tea is sweet like spring water. It is delicate, gentle and beautiful.
