White buds from old Yunnan Pu Erh trees are used to create this delicate new form of Pu Erh. While a 2012 harvest, these leaves are fermented in the traditional style but only using unopened fuzzy leaf buds. The result is a Silver Needle-like delicate cup but with notes of wildflower honey and classic Yunnan pepper. Harvest: Summer 2018.

Echoes of ancient Yunnan trees are present in these downy unopened leaf buds made sheng style, the green or raw form of traditional puerh. Sheng puerh processing was first developed in southern Yunnan and is considered a “living tea.” Stored carefully to protect climate intrusions, and aged slowly for at least five to ten years old, sheng puerh is well known for its health giving properties to aid digestion, reduce cholesterol, and in China, is frequently served after heavy meals. Yunnan Puerh White has a mellow cup with a peppery, honeyed flavor profile similar, but deeper, than Silver Needle.
