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.

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.

I think I approached this a little too early into it’s life as the cake was pretty newly pressed still and the young sheng notes out powered anything else. Not overly astringent by any means, but I remember thinking at the time it was too similar to other non-purple young shengs to justify it over something else. I only purchased a small sample however and reading other tasting notes leads me to believe what I was getting may have been due to brewing the leaves a little hot. Looking to return to this one at some point in time.
