From yunnan sourcing (private label)

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.

Ye Sheng "野生“ varietal aka “Camellia sinensis (L.) Kuntze var. assamica (J. Masters) Kitam.” is a primeval varietal that pre-dates Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica and is a naturally occuring non hybridized varietal. It’s potency in cha qi arises from it’s unadulterated nature. It is naturally bug repellent, and grows wild in the forests of Yunnan at an altitude of 1600-2200 meters.

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.

Our Jinggu Wild Tree Purple “Ye Sheng” is very different from other Purple Pu-erh varietals we have offered before. It’s heavy, bitter, sweet with a flower and fruit aroma. It grows near Ye Zhu Tang village in Jinggu county.

Preheated gaiwan 85 ml, boiling water in thermos. 4 grams. Rather loose than packed piece of tea. From Donatzsky.

Aroma of flowers hit my nose even I have not used any water yet. Seems it will be lovely.
When added water to do quick rinse (10 seconds) it became even more floral with notes of baked sweets. The rinse in taste is very sweet, floral and full of taste. In last sips bit of black tea taste.

The brew is really light in colour. Light green with yellow notes.
1st brew is about 12-13 seconds long, very floral in aroma as well in taste. Little fruity notes appear.

2nd 15 seconds
It turns out to bit vegetal, floral and not much fruity. Or maybe more stone fruits and less vegetal? My tastebuds are confused. Anyway really good and I start to feel cha qi – if it is that.

3rd 18 seconds
Scent of wet leaf is cherry wood. Taste of tea is much more fruitier than previous one. Tasty. Sweet. No bitterness or astringency.

4th 25 seconds
Indeed stonefruits. With floral notes. Good!

5th 45 seconds
Fruity with floral notes.

6th 60 seconds
Smooth floral tea. Maybe almost gone. It is nice, but bit bland. Not a long mouthfeel.

7th 75 seconds
Yep, it is done. Little floral notes and that is all.
