An unrivaled, rare tea made up of distinct long twisted black leaves that are hand-picked from indigenous wild tea plants growing in the mountains of Taiwan. It brews to a beautiful golden copper color that is medium-bodied and smooth. The flavor is rich and deliciously malty, with lingering honeysuckle notes. An exquisite tea.

This tea is a comfort tea. The lack of bitterness or astringency creates a cup that is settling and enlightening. The caffeine level seems balanced by awakening your senses while avoiding the jitters. I expected some inconsistent brews due to the "Wild" nature of the tea, but was pleasantly surprised by the static, natural flavor.
