Tea Bush

Wild Caicha is the oldest cultivar of Wuyi tea, and is also the representative species of medium- and small-leaf cultivars. It is a kind of short, small plant with thin branches, and reproduces sexually. Wild Caicha can be seen in the Tongmu and Da Anyuan state reserves; the plant is usually grown by seed propagation with natural hybridization among other tea trees, resulting in the mixed population diversity and different morphological characteristics between individual plants. Dahongpao, Baijiguan, Tieluohan, Shijingui, and Bantian’e are all selected from the rare Caicha, and as a result, this plant is regarded as an ancestor of many other tea varieties.

History

Lapsang Souchong, also called Zheng Shan Xiao Zhong, is the earliest black tea in the world, produced in 1568 in Tongmu Village on Wuyi Mountain, in Fujian. In 1604 it was spread to Europe and later from there to North America, and soon found its way into an important tradition: taking afternoon tea. However, due to frequent wars the numbers of production gradually decreased, and then almost ceased entirely by 1949. It was not recovered and redeveloped until the 1950s, and with the highest annual output ever.
