Tea Story

This premium aged Pu erh tea has a pronounced earthy aroma and taste with spicy undertones. Unlike many Pu erh teas, this loose leaf Pu erh has not been compressed into a shape. The tea leaves have been aged for 29 years, using traditional Chinese Pu erh aging methods. Ageing has developed a smooth and mature earthy flavour, which is exceptionally pleasurable.

This Pu erh tea belongs to the ‘Ripened’ category, also known as ‘Shu’. To get the most authentic brewing result, we recommend that you use a Gaiwan and follow the instructions in our Pu erh Brewing Guide.

Pu erh tea, is perhaps the most esoteric of Chinese tea varieties. Pu erh is among the few teas that improve with age. Like fine wines, decade-old Pu erh teas are expensive and sought-after collectables. Pu erh tea gets its name from the City of Pu’er, which is located in the southern region of the famous Yunnan Province of China. Tea has been cultivated in this part of China for around four thousand years. Historically, many trade routes flowed through this region. This played a large role in developing the popularity of Yunnan teas. For centuries, Pu erh teas have been offered in tribute to generations of Chinese emperors. Throughout history, the Chinese have believed that Pu erh tea aids digestion and has weight-loss benefits.

The best pu-erh tea I have drunk so far.
Friday, 19 July 2019  |  Yuqin

I ordered other two raw puerh tea cakes and requested a sample of this tea. After I tried this tea, my 7 years of drinking puerh tea experience tells me that this is the best puerh tea I have drunk so far. Very high quality, the color is dark amber and shiny clear, smooth without any other unpleasant taste. I definitely will order this tea soon. Highly recommend it.
