    Sheng Puer - Jinggu Purple Bud Raw Pu Er

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

    This Sheng Puer is made from the tender single bud of the wild, purple bud Pu Erh tea trees maocha. This tea 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 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.

    Currently, there is still no road that a car can navigate to this Wenshan village. We need to walk about 3 hours to reach this remote village. The spring yield of purple-bud is tea is extremely low, around 100kgs, so we have 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 Pu Erh teas. Many tea merchants use the Zijuan
    or Zicha ( purple tea) Maocha and market them as pure, purple bud 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. Sheng Puer - Purple bud Pu Erh tea has no tea hair and tea saw at both sides; the Zijuan and Zicha do not share these characteristics.


    This Sheng Puer 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.
