Description

This is one to purchase before it has been snapped up! Produced in the Spring of 2004 in the famous Xishuangbanna prefecture of Yunnan, it imparts a clean smooth flavor.  We have found after about the 4th infusion a sweetness is revealed.

This is a large brick, 250 grams.  It has the potential to age and develope for many more years! We recommend using a pu-erh knife to break off a small piece to infuse. Wrap the remaining pu-erh back up to enjoy as it ages!

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 distinct 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!
