2012 Zi Juan Purple Leaf Raw Puerh
A delicious sheng (or raw) pu-erh with a rich taste and no bitterness. Harvested in late April, the purple leaf puerh comes from a particular type of tea plant cultivar whose leaves are purple in early spring. The purple indicated a high amount of zinc and other nutrients, all of which lends itself to a smooth and complex flavor.
This cake's tea pluck consists of one bud and two to three young leaves. The leaves are from an area near Ning'er (aka Old Puer City) in Simao Prefecture.
