Only leaves harvested from the centuries-old arbour tea trees in Yiwu were used in the production of Purple Cane’s Chen Yun Green Puer Tea Bricks. Foremost among the six great mountains with forest of ancient tea trees, Yiwu is located at the Menghai highland tea region in Yunnan’s Xishuangbanna.
Picked from trees of the large-leaf varietal in spring, raw leaves were processed according to the time-honoured Dianqing raw tea method before being steamed and pressed into tea bricks of 300 grams each. The bricks were then bundled into dried bamboo leaves in stacks of four.
Chen Yun Green Puer Tea Bricks have been undergoing a natural ageing process in Purple Cane’s Malaysian Storage since 2001.
Brewed right away, the tea infusion imparts a hint of mild sweetness. It goes on to develop complex flavour that can only improve with the passage of time. Exquisite mellowness and pronounced aroma complement each other in a cup that comes with a long, captivating finish.
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.

Produced by Purple Cane Malaysia since 2001, the “Wild Puer” is a classic example of originality. It is a natural ageing condition (dry storage) branded tea of Malaysia. The raw material comes from the primitive organic wild tea bushes of Mengku, Yunnan. Leaves from these rare and ancient tea trees, more than 500 years old, give a profound taste, strong aroma, relishing flavour; in short, what Puer tea is all about.
In early spring of April 2001, Purple Cane together with tea extraordinaire Mr. Xiuyuan Lin and Mr. Rong Jiasheng, Chairman of Yunnan Shuangjiang Mengku Tea Co. Ltd., held a spring Tea Expo in Kunming. From this expo the first ever custom-made tea product with all-inclusive ingredients – “Purple Cane Wild Puer” (500g) - from the Mengku Daxueshan Tea District was conceived.
The tea cake surface is compressed with the original leaves of ancient arbor tea trees. Red, yellow and purple ribbons are compressed within the tea cakes. The purple symbolises the exclusive distribution to Purple Cane whilst red and yellow point to distribution to the China, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan tea market. Since then, Purple Cane has consistently followed up year after year in a 7-year-long production cooperation.
