Pu Erh

 Pu Erh refers to the region from which these teas originate — much like bordeaux or port. Pu Erh is a post-fermented black tea, offering sensory experience and health benefits which eclipse most other varieties of tea. It is for these reasons and more that Pu Erh has been dubbed the king of teas by experts. 

Pu Erh tea is meant to be aged — some examples being upwards of 150 years old. The longer a high quality Pu Erh tea ages, the more subtle and refined its flavour, the more far-reaching the health benefits, and the more penetrating the experience.  Each vintage, batch, pot and steeping is different. It is, an ever unfolding treasure trove of experience. For these reasons and more, the best examples of these teas enjoy close to mythic status in Chinese culture.

History

The recorded history of Pu Erh goes back a thousand years, being celebrated by poets, scholars, emperors and merchants alike. The tea trees of Yunnan province, China, are the oldest tea trees on earth and are the fountainhead of all subsequent tea production in China. The oldest trees are well over a thousand years old.

Part of the cultural heritage of the world. It is history that you can drink. One senses the age and majesty of this proud tea tradition in every cup.  Times past call out to you from within every pot of tea, bidding you to slow down and take a step back in appreciation of life.
