The tea originated from the wild tea tree growing region of Daxueshan (the great snowy mountain) in Mengku area of Yunnan Province, China. The region has the most densely growing broad-leaf tea tree clusters at the highest altitude among the world’s known tea growing areas. The trees are characterised as wild ancient tea trees of the broad-leaf varietal.
Raw leaves were plucked in early spring from ancient tea trees several hundred years old. Harvested leaves were sun-cured, steamed and compressed into 500-gram raw tea cakes. The stout strips of tealeaves covered by fine hair give a clear golden infusion that imparts light and refreshing aroma. A flavourful and lively brew, it comes with a very pleasant aftertaste.
Ideal for extended storage, the tea ages well to develop a mellow and rich profile with layers of flavour and aroma, elevating it to a whole new level.
With Daxueshan ancient tea growing region now a nationally-designated protected area of China, it is with regret that we have stopped producing this tea after an annual release between 2012 and 2015.
The tea is accordingly named “Daxueshan” Ancient Tree Tea as part of the Yun Pin Hao range by Purple Cane.
Break off a well-sized portion of tea leaves from the tea cake, add to brewing vessel until ¼ filled. Pour in freshly boiled water at 85°C-95°C and drain the tea infusion immediately. 1st brew is not for drinking, the purpose is for the tea leaves to unfurl and moisten. This helps release the full flavour of tea for a satisfying brew.
For 2nd brew, refill the brewing vessel with about 30 Seconds to extract the full flavour. Pour and Serve. It is good for several brews. Re-steep the leaves in a similar manner to enjoy the tea as it develops from steep to steep; continue re-steeping until the leaves are exhausted of flavour.

Purple Cane launched a commemorative tea cake in 2022 to mark the 35th anniversary of its launch into the tea business. Using Dian Qing (literally Yunnan green) as the raw material, the tea cake was made and shaped according to the long tradition of Puer production in the Yunnan Province by way of a stringent process. A unique combination of the climate and terrain, the health-promoting Yi Yun Hao is perfect for extended storage.
Yi Yun Hao is made of meticulously-picked fresh leaves harvested from the Menghai Tea Region in Yunnan's Xishuangbanna. The leaves were custom-blended before being steam-pressed into neat and solid tea cakes weighing 357 grams each. Taking as it is, the golden infusion is crisp and refreshing with pronounced aroma. The silky mouth feel is matched by layers of nuanced flavour and a pleasingly long finish.
Exquisitely-made by master tea craftsmen, Yi Yun Hao is ideal for extended storage to benefit from the amazing transformation over time, making it a worthy addition to your collection of hallmarked teas of superior quality. A premium brew specially presented to commemorate the remarkable tea journey of Purple Cane over the years.
