Product Description

Aged pu-erh has a character like no other tea. The dusty rust and cocoa colored leaves encase a rich aroma and pleasant body.

Insider Tip: Pu-erh teas are what the Chinese consider true black teas. What we in the West call black, is referred to as red there - referring to the liquor color. Pu-erhs have a disctinct flavor and are much beloved - some even invest in Pu-erh, keeping the aged cakes as an asset which can be sold for a higher value once it has aged more.

Caffeine Level: High.

Pu-erh comes from the Yunnan Province of China. With a strong, distinct flavor that is developed in the fermentation process, pu-erh is offered in two varieties: raw and ripened (Shenq/ Shu Pu We). Often compressed into bengs (cakes) or tou chas (small bird nest shaped rosettes) or even into fruit (such as our Tangerine Pu-erh), pu-erhs are believed to aid with digestion and weight loss, to be detoxifying and to help regulate blood sugars. Do some research and dive in!

Ingredients: Organic pu-erh tea.

Dark, smooth, bit fishy

Very dark and quite smooth. I love the taste, but for me it's hard to get past the fishy odour. It probably wouldn't offend most people, but my nose is too sensitive for it. To be fair, it's a "fresh" fish smell, not rotten.

I would have to disagree strongly with the review that says this is a mild tea. This tea is coffee dark when steeped correctly and is not for those wishing for anything light or sweet. It packs a wollop and I am darn glad it does. I have replaced all my usual caffeinated drinks in the morning before work with this mighty brew. No more coffee or pop for me in the morning. With a bit of hazelnut creamer and some turbinado sugar this tea will make you sing! The slower and more gradual release of caffeine from loose leaf tea, as opposed to the quick jolt and harsh let down from coffee or pop, is what gets me to lunch time, where I inevitably finish off the pot I made that morning! Your first infusion will be the best one, but I still enjoy the 2nd and 3rd. I would recommend not infusing beyond 3 because in my opinion the whole point of this tea is how strong and dark it is. Enjoy!
Excellent tea

Mild yet interesting, avoiding the mustiness sometimes encountered in pu-erh. The color is like rich red leather and the taste is unlike any other sort of tea, very intricate and pleasant.
