2012 "Yi Wu Purple Tea" Raw Pu-erh Tea Cake
2012 Yunnan Sourcing “Yi Wu Purple Tea” Raw Pu-erh tea cake * 250 grams
This tea cake is composed from early spring harvest of purple tea from the Yi Wu mountains in Xishuangbanna. Purple tea leaves from bushes aged 20 to 30 years and growing at an altitude of 1500-1600 meters were carefully picked and processed into this lovely tea. Purple tea is a large leaf varietal (Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica) that occurs naturally as a result of mutation.
While tea is a purple tea and has many of its traits, it is still overwhelmingly Yi Wu in character, making this a unique tea with plenty of character to age into something really special!
