2022 Yunnan Sourcing "Jinggu Ye Sheng Cha" Wild Tree Purple Tea Cake
An incredibly fantastic raw Pu-erh made from Wild Pu-erh tree leaves that have a dark purple color. This 野生茶 (Wild Tea) is naturally dark in color, and is heavy in anti-oxidants and catechins.
Ye Sheng "野生“ varietal aka "Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze var. assamica (J. Masters) Kitam." is a primeval varietal that pre-dates Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica and is a naturally occuring non hybridized varietal. Its potency in cha qi arises from its unadulterated nature. It is naturally bug repellent, and grows wild in the forests of Yunnan at an altitude of 1600-2200 meters.
The quality of the leaves and the meticulous processing ensures excellent storage and aging potential. The infused liquor is bright and is almost completely without bitterness. There is strong full taste in the mouth and a warm stimulating feel in the mouth and body after drinking this tea.
Our Jinggu Wild Tree Purple "Ye Sheng" is very different from other Purple Pu-erh varietals we have offered before. It's heavy, bitter and sweet with a flower and fruit aroma. It grows near Ye Zhu Tang village in Jinggu county.
