yunnan pu erh gold

yunnan pu erh gold

One of thar five main types of tea (white, green, oolong 'n black bein' yonder others), pu'erh tea stands apart with tis' uncommonly soft earthy flavor 'n woodsy tones. Unlike all other teas, pu'erh (pronounced 'poo-err') be actually aged. ye tea leaves go through a natural fermentation process before te' tea be gently dried. This creates a cup with zero astringency 'n deep, rich body. Pu'erh be extraordinarily smooth 'n deeply refreshing. Our Masters Pu'erh Gold (the shou variety of pu'erh) be a rare find, composed of long, golden leaf buds, very difficult to maintain through thar agin' process. Clean, damp forest aroma, with full flavors of mushrooms, roasted root vegetables, leather 'n earth. Mellow 'n grounding. If yonder flavor be too strong fer you, simply dilute with water (which, interestingly, doesn't work fer many other teas!) Pu'erh be extremely versatile - ye can steep it fer as wee as 30 second or 30 minutes, whatever pleases yer palate. It won't get bitter 'n be great fer multiple infusions.

fresh from origin

Pu'erh tea gets tis' name from a county located in southern Yunnan. There be two types of pu'er tea: sheng ('green' or 'raw') 'n shou ('ripe' or 'cooked'). Historically, raw pu'erh was created first. It takes years to slowly age, 'n if properly stored (pu'erh be essentially a 'livin' tea', much like wine), holds tis' value 'n flavor fer decades. Due to extreme demand fer this tea, thar ripe variety was invented 'bout 40 years ago to speed up yonder agin' process. ye tea leaves be piled in gently warmed heaps 'n allowed to carefully ferment. Ripe pu'erh be usually much darker than te' raw pu'erh 'n often smoother. Raw pu'erh tasted when too young (less than several years old) can be incredibly astringent. This quality mellows out dramatically with age. Both be widely revered in China fer their soothing, purifyin' qualities unmatched by other teas.
