PU'ER TEAS

Pu'er is a unique delicacy; teas from the Yunnan region of China are compressed into cake, brick, tuo, or melon forms, both while still green and after complete oxidation. They are then allowed to age with the help of microorganisms native to the region, fermenting like wine or cheese.

The result is an exceptionally smooth, earthy and deeply flavorful tea which is prized for its quality and medicinal properties, and possesses all of the subtleties and appreciable qualities of the finest of wines. They are known for their robust color, fragrance, and taste, a rich, earthy flavor good for multiple steepings. It's best to rinse the tea leaves with boiling water for just a few seconds before brewing to remove tea dust.
