The Yunnan Province and the Wuliang Mountain in China are home to an incredibly sought-after tea variety called pu-erh. The magnitude of pu-erh tea's phenomenal splendor and influence extended literal boundaries, eventually becoming the name of the region surrounding its geographic origin. In modern Western culture, pu-erh tea is considered black tea. Through the eyes of the Chinese, it is categorized as red tea. Either way, the process of producing pu-erh tea remains identical. After being removed from the tree branches by hand, the leaves of pu-erh tea are dried, rolled, fermented, and oxidized. The leaves are flavorful and fragrant enough to repeatedly steep for multiple cups of tea. Like delectable cheeses and a select few full-bodied wines, pu-erh teas are extraordinary when aged. Wild Tea Qi suggests a decent shelf-life, but no longer than a maximum of two years.
Members of the Yi and Dai Tribes of the Yunnan Province hand-picked the tea leaves found in Wild Tea Qi’s yi tribal coin tubes. The tea grows from trees with life spans of 400-500 years in the making, all rooted in the soil of the Yang Ta mountain. With an elevation as tall as 8,760 feet, the tea trees are no match for competition. They reach heights as tall as 27 feet and their trunks expand to an average of 6-12 feet in diameter. The selection of tea leaves is an art form that the people of the Yunnan Province have perfected and mastered. Once the leaves have been removed from the tea trees, they are pressed by hand into discs six grams in diameter. They are then wrapped in gold foil, allowing for practical use, such as transporting the tea safely while commuting from home to work, or taking it with you on business trips. The compactness of the yi tribal coins also permits personal brewing without complication.
Rattan qi tea is Wild Tea Qi’s newest strand of pu-erh tea. Hand-selected early on in 2017, rattan qi tea leaves come from trees with a minimum age of 150 years old. A skilled artisan and tea connoisseur by the name of Shana Zhang endured a month of work in order to perfect the tea. Utilizing a more cutting-edge and innovative method of collecting leaves from tea trees, Zhang was certain that the tea leaves would be of utmost excellence. She incorporated a rare form of plucking that not many craftspeople are confident with, showing her advanced skill in the art of tea preparation and extraction.
The Mengku Valley tea leaves are superior and conspicuous beyond compare. They are produced by big-leaf tea trees found on the Wuliang Mountain at heights of over 7,200 feet. The size of the leaves is the factor that sets these leaves apart from other teas. They are voluminous and larger than your average tea leaf, providing more surface area than most varieties. The trees nearly touch the sky, an attribute that is thought to infuse the leaves with sun qi. This energy is viewed as a special superpower.

Grandma Yang of the Yi tribe – located on the Yunnan Province in China – collected the tea leaves, plucking them from the branches of certified organic tea trees. The tea leaves were grown and harvested on a sustainable tea plantation on Wuliang Mountain. The natural beauty of their foundation shines through the purple tea leaves.
