Raw leaves of this commemorative tea were harvested in 2006 from broad-leaf tea trees located at the Daxueshan (great snowy mountain) region of Mengku in Lincang Prefecture, the Yunnan Province. The leaves collected were steamed and then compressed into shape using conventional stone mills. Compression was handled skilfully to ensure a visually-appealing shape and appropriate compactness. The tea comes in 400-gram cakes.
The same year, they began a natural, dry ageing process in Purple Cane’s Malaysian Storage.
In 2015, the tea was hand-picked as the commemorative tea in conjunction with Ru Shi Wo Xing (literally, the Way I have taken), a Purple Cane-organised event in honour of the 60-year-old Reverend Master Ji Cheng to celebrate his dedicated teaching of Dharma, and a 30-year bond between the Master and Purple Cane built upon tea.
A limited edition, the tea yields a mellow infusion with pronounced aroma and distinct layers of flavour, making it a wonderful brew for instant gratification and a great addition to one’s tea collection for extended storage.
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 celebrates its 33rd anniversary with a commemorative tea cake made with Dian Qing, literally Yunnan Green. It is produced and shaped in the traditional way following a stringent process. It is named Gengyun Hao with reference to the year of Gengzi according to the Chinese lunar calendar.
The raw ingredient of "Gengyun Hao" is the spring harvest of tealeaves originating from the Menghai tea area of Xishuangbanna, Yunnan. Only carefully selected leaves were blended and steam-pressed into tea cakes of 357g each.
It yields a brisk golden infusion with a gentle but bright aroma and layered, full-bodied flavour.
Purple Cane launched "Gengyun Hao" in 2020 to celebrate years of hard work, and to reinforce its commitment to promoting a life of tea enjoyment.

The “Gu Shu Wang” Raw Puer Tea is an original classic series created by Purple Cane. It follows the concept and format of “Purple Cane Wild Puer Tea” series (2001-2007) of 500g per tea cake, releasing a newly produced batch each year since 2008. It has become an all-time-favourite puer tea as well as a valuable collectible popular among tea lovers.
The tea leaves are harvested from centuries-old trees of the large-leafed varietal from Mengku mountainous areas, Yunnan Province, China. The raw leaves undergo a meticulous “kill-green” process before being steamed and compressed into round tea cakes.
The stout leaf strips of Gu Shu Wang yield a golden tea infusion with a lively, rich and full-bodied flavour, refreshing aroma, and lingering mellow aftertaste. This tea promises the best of both worlds - it is good enough for enjoyment right now; meanwhile, it ages well and will achieve a mellower and richer to produce an even more satisfying brew for a long time to come.

The production is in full compliance with the original 7542 tea cake processing procedure. The raw materials are harvested from a semi-arbor type of broad-leaf varietal tea trees on the mid-slopes at an altitude between 1400m & 1800m at the famous ancient tea tree mountains of Nanluo and Bulang in Xishuangbanna, Yunnan.
As it contained raw teas of various grades, the tea cake showcased the characteristics of different tea leaves, yielding a smooth infusion with very appealing taste to the consumers. The mellow, smooth and clean infusion of early 7542 (now commonly known as 88 Green/Qing in the market) has won over consumers and the tea fraternity alike. 57% of the raw tea has reached the qualified grade 4 specification, hence the export number "7542" ("75" indicates its launch year 1975, "4" indicates the major grade characteristics of the raw tea leaves, and "2" indicates the number of its place of origin, Menghai tea factory).

【FREE One (1) Brick 7893 Ripe Puer Brick and One (1) Tasting Pack 50g worth MYR 356 with purchase of every stack of Qing yun Pu】
Qing Yun Pu is a Raw Puer Tea that hailed from Lincang, Yunnan, China. It is made of large-leafed varietal tea leaves that are sun-dried, steamed and compressed in the traditional way into round tea cakes.
This tea yields an infusion with a distinct “Dian” note, a flavour unique to traditionally produced Yunnan teas. The natural wild air of Lincang mountainous areas is preserved and amplified with a slight wood-fired note in the “kill-green” process, giving the tea a “worldly” character.
Qing Yun Pu responds to the seasons well, while retaining a strong character that would rather be rebellious than tender, a style expressed in its subtle fire-roasted aroma and boldness on the palate that makes this tea distinctively memorable.
Drink it now and enjoy its spirit, or collect for later enjoyment.
During one of our field trips to the tea growing area of Lincang, Yunnan in the spring of 2005, we visited an old tea factory and made a rare find. A batch of loose leaves undergoing pile-fermentation in the workshop caught our attention. Pronounced sweet notes of dried red dates wafted through the air, reminding us of tea bricks of the era of the Cultural Revolution. We promptly took the entire stock and ordered to have the leaves processed according to the traditional method into 250-gram tea bricks. The bricks, code-numbered 7883, were delivered to Purple Cane’s Malaysian Storage and made available the same year.
The bright, ruby-brown infusion is rich and velvety with an intoxicating aroma of red dates. It finishes with an intense aftertaste of well-aged tea. A gem of a tea brick that is too good to be missed!
