A deep earthy, yet regal ruby rich loose leaf pu'erh. Pu'erh's are traditionally aged like a fine wine; and this "shu" pu'erh has been mellowing into perfection since 2003!
Pu'erh's are named after a trading post in Yunnan, China and they began with the nomadic traditions who needed a sturdy tea for traveling over the steep mountains.
Pu'erh is reknowned throughout China for its health benefits... Studies show it can lower cholesterol & aid in the digestion of fat. It is used in Chinese Medicine to increase chi & tonify the body.
A sumptuous loamy base with mahogany, bamboo, vanilla & cocoa overtones.
