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 Pu'erh Poe (the shou variety of pu'erh) gives a clean, woodsy aroma, warm hay inside a barn, mushrooms 'n savory vegetables. Wilted flower notes 'n a faint dark chocolate texture. Mellow 'n grounding. If thar 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.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Fresh From Origin

Pu'erh tea gets tis' name from a county located in southern Yunnan. There be two types of pu'erh 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.
