The black pu-erh tea we offer is hand harvested from wild and semi-wild broad leaf antique tea trees located in the Yunnan province of China. Pu-erh is often referred to as "cooked" due to the fact that sun-dried green tea leaves are transformed through natural fermentation from a greenish-golden color to a blackish-red tone. Over the years Pu-erh has garnered a committed following amongst tea connoisseurs who regard it as a sacred relic leftover from ancient tea cultures and traditions. Partially fermented which will appeal to the senses of both the black tea lover and the green tea lover.
Deep and earthy, with light notes of smoke and moss.
A woodsy fragrance of moist soil, tree bark, and autumnal leaves.
