What to Look for When Purchasing Wild Tea?

  • Check for Detailed Origin Information

Compared to other Chinese tea, the production of wild tea is very limited. The reasons for the low yield of wild tea include the small number of wild tea trees, the need for manual harvesting, and the high difficulty in processing wild tea.

As a result, there are instances where plantation tea is sold but claimed to be wild tea.

Before purchasing wild tea, be sure to check for detailed origin information and photos of the tea plantations. This will help ensure you are buying authentic, high-quality wild tea.

  •  Check for Relevant Testing and Certification

Wild tea trees grow without human management, so generally, no pesticides or fertilizers are involved in the growth of wild tea.

If you are looking for organic loose leaf tea from China, you can consider looking within the range of Chinese wild tea.

Before purchasing, check for organic testing and certification from professional organizations to ensure you are buying qualified organic loose leaf tea.


  •  Consider Purchasing Samples Before Buying Full Packages

Wild teas of different varieties have very different taste profiles. It's not advisable to buy large packages of tea until you are sure which type of loose leaf tea you prefer.

You can start by trying samples using a loose leaf tea sampler. Once you've determined your preferred taste, then purchase full packages, which is more economical and practical.
