This is a magnificent tea. It reminds me of the finest tie guan yin, but with even more flavor, more sweetness. Well worth the price, I will continue to buy an ounce or two at the time and cherish each steeping.

I shared some with my 18 year old male student who is rather new to “real” tea and he said it was his favorite so far. I don’t know when I should break it to him that he has very expensive taste in tea!

Many many thanks to ashmanra for sending me some of this very precious tea to try!

This is one of the most interesting teas I’ve ever tasted! I think it’s called “wild forest” because it tastes a bit like those fresh pine needles that I had in that pine tisane! That piney/menthol/lemonyness… but fine delicious tea too! It’s a great combination and addictive! My taste buds are curious and keep nudging me to take another sip because they can’t quite place these flavors…together!

I’m looking forward to many many steeps today, and will post a comment later on how they evolved!

Supposedly, it is called Wild Forest because the old tea masters go out into the forests where they alone know the locations of wild, uncultivated tea trees and gather the leaves to make this tea! I think a lot of these stories are romantic marketing and for our benefit, but fun nevertheless! :)

I am on my second steep and I can’t believe how SWEET it is!! What a prize, whatever the hows and whys :) :) :) Mmmmmm! I was going to have some Royal Wedding this afternoon, but I think this one is going to delight me the entire day!

I’m going on my 6th steep and it’s still vibrant and extremely naturally sweet. I’m still getting piney – maybe sage/thyme or even ginko – but an overwhelming sweetness after you take a sip. This is the most unique tea experience I’ve had in quite awhile!

That lingering sweetness is amazing! Every time I inhale my head fills with flowers again…

I am not sure if I should thank Ashmanra for sending me a sample of this. It is fabulous but now I am an addict to a $200 a pound tea. This tea is worth though, it is that amazing. Just to look at it you think much of this little tea. It is nonuniform, some big chunks some tiny leaves, a nice shade of green but nothing special. The smell of the wet leaves was like toasted pine nuts or maybe sunflower seeds to me. The truly amazing thing is the transformative taste of this tea. It first hits your tongue as a mineral, nutty roundness and the as you swallow becomes some and citrusy and lingers on the back of your palate. As you inahle after you still have those lingering notes. It is so amazing that you simply want to meditate on this tea and the sensory experience that you have just had. I am quite simply hooked.
