17' Yunnan Purple Cane's Zhen Wei Hao Green Puer Tea
Hailed from the Yunnan Province, Puer Tea is made with tea leaves harvested from the large-leaf variety tea trees. The processing of freshly-picked leaves involves fixing, rolling and sun-drying to yield maocha (green raw tea), known as Dian Qing, literally Yunnan Green. Sun-dried maocha could be moistened, and covered for 'pile fermentation' (wodui) to yield shou cha (ripe puer). Green maocha and the fermented dark puer can be sold loose, or in compressed form such as tea bricks, round tea cakes, square teas or toucha (tea balls), which offer distinct flavours of their own, making it very unique type of tea.
Purple Cane presents Zhenwei Hao
It has been thirty years since Purple Cane was established to venture into the tea trade and to promote tea culture. The three-decade journey calls for a commemorative tea, and it comes in the form of a limited edition made under the joint supervision of respected tea personnel, Mr Lu Li Chen and the founder of Purple Cane, Mr Lim Hock Lam.
The tea is made with fresh leaves of the broadleaf varietal harvested from the Yiwu tea growing region located at a high elevation in the Menghai County, Yunnan Province, China.
The pollution-free and ecologically-safe environment yields premium quality raw material, which has been sun-dried, steamed, shaped and compressed using the time-tested traditional method. The finished product exemplifies perfectly the lingering finish of a premium Yiwu tea. 'Purple Cane's Zhenwei Hao' gives an infusion that is lively with a soothingly smooth mouthfeel. A light infusion gives a delightfully sweet aftertaste, and a heavier infusion demonstrates layers of flavour with a mellow and pleasant appeal. It is suitable for both immediate consumption and extended storage.
Creating values and building a legacy, the commemorative 'Purple Cane's Zhenwei Hao' Puer Tea Cake is firmly placed in the development of tea history and culture in Southeast Asia.
