A strong, earthy tea harvested from trees found in the Pu’erh County of the Yunnan Province in China. This area was imperial China’s trading post for tea as far back as the first and second century, and the tea produced there was generally compressed for easier transporting on ships. Known as “tea bricks,” the tea is produced by post-fermentation, a process in which the tea leaves undergo a microbial fermentation process after they are dried and rolled. Dark Puerh undergoes the entire post-fermentation process. Some loose and compressed Puerhs are stored for maturity and labeled with year of production, making them rare and expensive. Our Puerh is an extremely fair price, especially considering it may be brewed multiple times.
