Tea Story

This wonderful Pu erh tea is aged for up to five years, during which time it develops a rich and deep earthy flavour. This outstanding version of loose leaf Pu erh is a testament to the meticulous aging and fermentation process used by the expert Pu erh producers of Yunnan, China. The brew offers a deep dark-brown colour with exceptional earthy notes. This Pu erh tea belongs to the ‘Raw’ category, also known as ‘Sheng’.

To get the most authentic brewing result, we recommend that you use a Gaiwan and follow the instructions in our Pu erh Brewing Guide.

Aged and fermented dark teas came about as a result of transporting teas to rural areas of China’s borders, hundreds of years ago. Before transporting tea to these areas, the Chinese would compress the tea leaves into slabs and logs. Traveling on horseback and camel, the teas were expose to moisture and began to ferment. It was discovered that this developed the flavour of the tea and it was believed that the fermentation created a tea that aided digestion and provided important nutrients.

Today, Pu erh tea is a sought-after speciality that can be compared to fine wines.

Aged: 4-5 years.

Ingredients: Pure Chinese Pu erh Tea.

Great for "Titanium Tea"
Saturday, 21 April 2018  |  Mark

I'm no tea purest. This pu-erh brews a dark brown earthy tea. I mix it tsp 1:1 with Japanese sencha all brewed in a glass teapot. The sencha adds sweet but slightly astringent flavour and brightens the colour up. The result is a dark amber tea that I sweeten with a dash of cinnamon.

Great to wake up to

I've drunk a lot of Puer tea and it varies a great deal. Some of the really expensive ones are quite sweet; this one is really earthy and smokey. Fabulous flavour, gies you a nice lift in the morning. Really fires the digestion and I find it helps my morning Taichi practice. I'd brew this at 95% rather than 100% as boiling water burns off some of the subtle flavours.

This for me, is a very strong earthy tea and other reviewers are right, it does have a taste that makes you think of soil but thats what it should taste like.
