18' Purple Cane Ye Sheng Zi Ya Green Puer Tea
This is a rare type of tea from large-leafed trees originating from the Lincang Ancient Tea Mountain of Yunnan, China. Freshly picked purple buds have undergone traditional processing including fixation, rolling and sun drying to produce green maocha, or unoxidized raw green tea, which is then steam-pressed into shape. Neatly pressed tea cake with a natural sheen yields clear, bright yellowish infusion that is brisk, aromatic and pleasantly sweet on the palate.
Wild Purple Buds are rich in anthocyanins. Fresh leaves sport a reddish-purple tint, while the dried leaves are dark green in colour. Interestingly, the tea leaves turns yellowish-green at the end of brewing. The tea can be enjoyed as is, or kept over an extended period of time for natural maturation to let time works its magic.
