    Raw Puer - Purple-bud Big Tree Pu Erh Tea

    Raw Puer - Purple Bud big tree Pu Erh tea is from Wenshan village  in Jinggu county in Yunnan province, where the mountain altitude is over 2000 meters.

    This raw puer is made from the tender single bud of the wild, purple-bud Pu Erh tea trees maocha. This big tree raw puer is called three-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 raw puer 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.

    Currently, there is still no road that a car can navigate to this Wenshan village. The Peak team needs to walk about 3 hours to reach this remote village. The spring yield of purplebud is tea is extremely low, around 50 kgs. The Peak team has to buy partial kilos from various farmers to collect enough fine tea for a reasonable production. Given this, collecting the maocha from the farmers is quite an adventure. After gathering a sufficient quantity of purple-bud maocha, the tea is pressed by traditional stone, which is good for the future storage, and quickens the process of aging.

    In the current Pu Erh tea market, there are many fake purple-bud big tree Pu Erh teas. Many tea merchants use the Zijuan or Zicha ( purple tea) Maocha and market them as pure, purple-bud big tree Pu Erh tea to increase their profit margins at the expense of the consumer. The difference between purple-bud, Zijuan and Zicha lies in the shape, fragrance, taste. But the easiest way to tell the difference is by the particular tea leaf shape. Purple-bud big tree Pu Erh tea has no tea hair and tea saw at both sides; the Zijuan and Zicha do not share these characteristics.

    This raw puer tea is an outstanding candidate for long-term storage. If the tea is aged for about 5 years, it will already start to demonstrate an aged aroma, sweet and thick taste.
