FOREST PICK follows a rigorous and meticulous blending process, which is the method adopted for authentic Chinese Jasmine Tea. Unlike most blending which is done by mixing tea with dried materials, our blending is done with fresh LITSEA fruits.

  • Our WILD TEAs are blended with fresh Litsea fruits overnight in a basket (container) and separated the next day morning and the tea leaves are then sun dried
  • These process is repeated over 3 times in order to achieve the right mix
  • This method of blending gives an infusion of fresh aromas which is more enjoyable than aroma infused through dried herbs or flowers
  • Also, this process avoid infusion of dried herbs/flowers while brewing the tea, as the dried herbs/flowers sometimes give unwanted taste and texture to the tea liquor

We use BLACK TEA as the base material for this blend.

The health benefits of WILD BLACK TEA and the superlative properties of LITSEA is something which is extraordinary and out of the world.

Wild teas are made from tea trees (camellia Sinensis ) which are grown wild in the forest. Unlike conventional tea estate or cultivated tea bushes, wild teas are ungroomed and unfurnished by any commercial activity. The plants are not owned or managed by any commercial entity. They grow much bigger and taller, production is much lesser, picking is much more difficult because of the terrain & tree size and most WILD TEA are hand crafted.

Why Wild Tea?

Wild teas have many advantage over commercialized tea both for HEALTH REASONS and for forest ECO – SYSTEM

Superior Health Benefits: These are teas which have never seen any form of chemicals inputs. They are grown in the wild, far away from the hustling and bustling economic activities of mankind. Because they are older trees and unpruned, it is believed that their deeper root system takes better nutrients and minerals from the earth.

They are more COMPLEX: Wild tea grows in a heterogeneous forest ecosystem among various species of wild flowers, herbs and trees. They mixed and get infused in this wild collage of different plant species, which gives more complexity in their aromas and flavors.

Natural Process: Unlike commercialized Tea, wild teas are mostly hand processed by Native Artisans in their village hamlet. They are produced in little of wild green leaves. Natural withering, Hand rolled, Sundried, Manual Sorting and Manual packing. These are teas which can be as natural as it get, they are MORE THAN ORGANIC.

Pro Environment: They help make the earth greener because they grow much bigger than the commercialized tea bushes. They give shelter for many fauna & floras in the forest, they also takes active part in the bio-diversity process of the forest.

Economic Cause of the Natives: The economic activities of the Native Artisans are mostly wood lumbering, jhooming cultivation or forest produce, which is unreliable and heavily subjected to the vagaries of Mother Nature. Every penny paid on this wild teas trickle back to the economy of this Native Artisans.
