Wild old tea bushes are scattered throughout in the mountains of Jin Zhai, Anhui, China, a series of deep, pristine, remote mountains with fewer than 100 households in small villages throughout. Here, the villagers forage from these wild tea bushes to make a specialty green tea without fanfare, only for the prestige of gift-giving to their local government officials. Foraging is labor intensive, and the villagers have to traverse through deep woods and bushes strewn far and wide to find enough tea buds to make even a small batch. We commission an batch for our American audience to taste the difference in wild, uncultivated tea nourished only by the sun and morning dew.
