PU-ERH TEA — RIPE CHINESE PU’ER LOOSE LEAF
Pu-erh tea is a tea with a rich history and traditional roots in Yunnan, China. The brew has a red appearance and smoky earthiness that stems from its unique production method. In particular, this ripe (shou) loose leaf is said to sport floral notes that are akin to spring dew. A traditional Chinese tea that’s perfect on its own and enjoyable throughout the day.
Tea experts love a quality pu-erh. This is because its microbial fermentation process endows the leaves with powerful flavour. Specifically, this tea is a ripe loose leaf tea that our suppliers left to ferment for at least sixty to seventy days. Upon harvest, the leaves were then left to dry in a dampened heap and covered in hemp cloth (the ‘wet piling’ artificial fermentation process) to accelerate their fermentation. Once seventy days passed, this particular tea was not compressed. Instead, it was left to age for a further eight years, enhancing its flavour with each turn of the sun.
