Description

This Grand Cru has lively notes with plenty of body. The unfermented leaves of Da Ye Sauvage or Wild Da Ye bring mineral, metallic, animal and vegetal notes, sustained by the astringency. The Cangyuan DanJia garden (1,800 to 2,300 metres in altitude) is situated in the city of Lincang near Da Hei mountain in Yunnan province.

To make some Pu Erhs, the Chinese like to use the leaves of giant tea plants, which have been left to grow to a height of several metres. These plants belong to the “Da Ye” (“large leaves”) cultivar, which is recognisable here, and they are known simply as “wild”.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

This premium tea is an excellent opportunity to try a Pu Erh Sheng before it is shaped into a cake, with its leaves that have been withered in the sun and picked from ancient wild tea plants.

Special qualities

  • Origine : Jing Gu (Yunnan), Chine
  • Couleur : Pu Erh vert

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
