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.

Originating from the tea region of Mengku in the Yunnan Province, China. These premium tea leaves were harvested from tea trees of the large-leafed species. Only tender tea leaves of early spring are used. These go through a stringent process to become sun-dried raw loose tea leaves, which, upon steaming and compressing become compressed round tea cakes. Yun Shu Wang green puer tea cakes look stout with pronounced leaves, yielding golden tea infusion with refreshing aroma. The tea is noted for its brisk smooth and mellow flavour with a pleasantly sweet aftertaste. Yun Shu Wang green puer tea cakes promise the best of both worlds- it is good enough for brewing right now; meanwhile, it ages well and continues to mellow, giving a rich and 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).

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!
