Descriptions
 
Yuan Sheng means “Original life”. This name is coined by Li Shu Lin referring to a technique for the artisan fermentation of very small batches of pu-er. In contrast to the industrial Wo Dui process as well as the smaller scale Xiao Dui Zui process, tea leaves are not turned during the maturation of yuan sheng tuo. This allows the micro-organisms that ferment the tea to form networks of hyphae, causing the leaves to consolidate into a solid chunk, the word tuo refers to this solid amorphous shape. Li Shu Lin’s motivation for this style of fermentation was to recreate the complex flavor of the old, naturally fermented sheng pu-er that he drank as a child. This process is slower, smaller, and requires more skill and attention than the wo dui or xiao dui zui processes it can only be done with a maximum of ten kilograms of tea at a time. As a result, each individual batch of yuan sheng tuo is unique, though all possess the rich, earthy organic flavor of shu pu-er while retaining the complex fragrance of sheng pu-er.
