Tea Story

This wonderful Pu erh tea is aged for up to five years, during which it develops a rich and deep, earthy flavour.

This outstanding version of loose-leaf Pu erh is a testament to the meticulous ageing 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'. The 'Shou' category goes through an extra processing step known as "cooking", which hastens the ageing process.

 The flavour of Raw Pu erh changes over time. A well-aged Raw Pu erh has a strong, earthy yet clean and smooth flavour, sometimes with toasty or sweet undertones.

DID YOU KNOW? 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. Travelling on horseback and camel, the teas were exposed to moisture and so began to ferment. It was discovered that this developed the flavour of the tea!

Nowadays, it is believed that the fermentation created a tea that aided digestion and provided important nutrients.

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

Aged: 4-5 years.

How to store your Pu Erh tea

It is best to store Pu erh teas in a cool, dry place, away from temperature fluctuations and odours. If you intend to drink the tea within five years, we recommend breaking up the cake into small pieces, using your Pu erh prying pick. This will leave more surface of the tea exposed to air, allowing for further oxidation and developing the flavour complexity.

 

 

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