How It Tastes

This aged and fermented tea is robust with flavor, offering a smooth cup, with earthy notes of chocolate and espresso. The thick body and dense chestnut taste leave a resounding finish on the palate. This tea can be prepared 'gongfu' style, using a small teapot and preparing multiple infusions from the same leaves, and is best enjoyed if it's rinsed with boiling water prior to steeping.

History

Pu'er (or Pu-erh) tea is a fully fermented China tea, also known as hei cha or 'dark tea'. For generations, the ethnic groups of southwest Yunnan province have wild-harvested leaves from ancient tea plants, some centuries old and as tall as trees. The pressed leaves' unique and traditional shape is called tuo cha, or "bowl tea"; this tea can be aged and enjoyed for many years.
