Very unique and delicious aged Wuyi Hong Cha style tea made with Wu Yi cultivar leaves that come from wild, natural gardens stewarded by Seediq aboriginals near Ching Jing in Nantou Taiwan. The tea leaves were processed as a highly oxidized Taiwanese red tea (hong cha) but made in the Wu Yi Mountain Yancha oolong style with slow charcoal roasting. Read more below:

Incredible pan-fried Korean Sejak harvest green tea made with great skill. This high grade is called Jakseol,which translates as Sparrow's Tongue. This particular tea was made by Dong Cheon, the same wonderful organic co-op that makes our Nokcha green tea. The difference between the two teas is that Sejak is the 2nd highest grade of tea in Korea and is made with spring leaves from the third week of April, and our Nokcha is an early summer tea harvested at the end of May. Both teas, however, are harvested from old wild Hadong varietal trees growing on the famous Jirishan mountain. You'll find this tea to be very intense, fresh and vegetal, something between a fragrant pan-fried Chinese green and a full-bodied shaded japanese green tea, especially if you play with water temperature! We suggest you try brewing it both ways: at 75º (45sec; 80sec; 2 min) and at 60º (1.5min; 2.5min; 3.5min)

We couldn’t resist this fantastic Wild Purple Bud Hong Cha from Dehong! You’ve probably noticed we at Čaj Chai are big fans of the natural wild-occurring purple bud varietal that can be found in Yunnan, China and parts Vietnam. You may have tried our excellent Purple Bud Puerh, Purple Moonlight White or some of the fantastic Purple Leaf Hong Cha we’ve been offering from Dehong, Fenqing and Yongde. This tea is very different, and just as remarkable, its appearance is more reminiscent of the Purple Bud Puerh White Tea we offer but oxidized to produce a hong cha.

Very special wild white tea made from Ye Sheng wild purple varietal tea that grows in the Hong Ni Tan mountains and then processed like traditional Yue Guang Bai (Moonlight White). The wild purple varietal is quite distinct. You'll find it very complex, with notes of spices, fruit, vegetables, flowers, sugarcane, and pleasant bitter-sweetness. After processing and packaging, Moonlight White oxidizes further over time, in upcoming months the light bitterness will slowly transform into sweetness and the leaves and color of infusion tend to get darker.

These buds differ greatly from Silver Tips because they come from a different varietal of camellia tea tree that grows in Western Yunnan. The buds are picked in early spring and sun-dried. After brewing this tea one can play with buds, picking them apart gently… Marvel at the fractal layers of unopened buds that are contained in a single bud. We’ve counted 9!
