2011 Jinggu Purple Bud Spring Raw 250g
Purple bud big leaves Pu-erh tea trees from Wenshan village, Jinggu county, Yunnan province. Purple-bud (紫芽) Pu-erh Tea is from Wenshan village where the mountain altitude is over 2,000 meters. Currently, there is still no road that a car can navigate to this Wenshan village. The JK Tea team must walk about 3 hours to reach them. The spring yield of purple-bud tea is extremely low (around 100kgs), so the team must buy partial kilos from various farmers to collect enough fine tea for a reasonable final production. Given this, collecting the máochá from the farmers is quite an adventure. After gathering a sufficient quantity of purple-bud máochá, the tea is pressed using traditional stones of the appropriate weight; this is good for the future storage and quickens the process of aging compared to a cake that is tightly compressed by machine.

This tea is called 3-color tea; this means the fresh buds on the tea trees are purple, the dried tea is shiny dark, and the infused tea leaves are green for the first one or two years. The purple-bud pu-erh tea tree is actually a rare tea tree variety in the Yunnan large-leaf tea trees and is famous for its high health benefits, high percentage of anthocyanidins, and amino acids, particularly tea polyphenols.
