From Yunnan Sourcing

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.

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.

This tea brick is composed of entirely spring 2012 raw material and while it is very similar to our 2005-2011 500 gram bricks, it’s not exactly the same.

Producer: Yunnan Sourcing

Very smoky and savory, with a thicker broth-like feel in the mouth. This one is already starting to change its character from when I first purchased it several months back. Very unique purple leaf, not as tangy as some. Very mature and nice chaqi. Seems to be one that will be special as it ages. We shall see.

Even the rain couldn’t stop me today, to get some of my favorite Sheng and this is one of them.

Everything I rate is an 88.

After the clean, the gaiwan smells like smoked meats. Savory and thick. It’s an oddly pleasant smell that stirs hunger and desire for scrambled eggs. The soup itself smells of pine…

An incredibly complex tea… a little bitterness in the beginning but quickly morphs into something sweet and thick in the mouth… strong cha qi!
