Wild Ancient (Cake)

Wild Ancient (Cake)


  • Carefully hand picked from ancient, wild growing, Yunnan tea trees, the collected leaves enclose the root induced millennial Cha Qi. Naturally dried and fermented in the open air, the plush leaves are delicately rolled and tightly combined into a sphere. Its diffusion produces a uniquely intense aroma of ripe peach, honeyed stone fruit and malt, ultimately softening in a faint hint of passionfruit.

  • Wild millennial tree Black Tea

  • Spring First Flush

  • Classic teapot, Yixing, Gaiwan in Ceramic, Clay or Purion.
