Purple Tea From Daxue Mountains

Da Xue Shan Ye Sheng Hong Cha has its origin in the Daxue Mountains, which was declared to be one of the most important tea growing regions of Yunnan province as far back as during the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). Ancient 700-years-old purple leaved trees grow wild there at the attitude of 2200-2750 m above sea level, alternating with savage thickets. Only the plants kept in the best condition, growing in the highest areas with the proper density and covering belong to this superior class of tea trees in China. Wild tea trees are protected by the government, considered as a priceless natural treasure, a living fossil, historically proving the fact of the domestication of tea plants.

The Daxue Mountains are notable for the extraordinary good natural conditions: temperate climate, optimum ambient temperature, plenty of rainfalls, fertile ground, promoting the rapid growth of the trees and accumulation of beneficial minerals in young leaves and buds. Main cultivation areas are located at the Tropic of Cancer latitudes. Many experts agree that the world-best sorts of tea are grown in highlands situated in this immediate region.

 Tea from the Daxue mountains is regarded as valuable specimen from Yunnan province, one of the rarest variety of purple teas. Small number of wild plants, strict picking rules and laborious processing technology limit the production volume, therefore, Da Xue Shan Ye Sheng Hong Cha is estimated extremely high and considered a collector’s item. Back in ancient times, purple tea had been an imperial tribute sort, so only the Emperor and his confidants had an opportunity to try it. In our times, this tea, undoubtedly, can be served as a nice treat for the dearest guests.
