Single Origin, Farm Direct Teas
Tea purists—our pu-erh offerings were selected just for you. Revered as the original teas of the Earth, these versatile teas are made in a unique style of fermentation and come in two categories: raw sheng, sundried leaves waiting to ferment and age naturally over a long period of time; and intentional post fermentation shu, which only improve with age (much like a fine wine). The name ‘pu-erh’ comes from the historical tea trade in Yuannan, where varietals are still harvested from, sometimes, thousand-year-old trees in the spring, fall and winter. These carefully selected leaves are pressed into bingcha (round discs), tuocha (small nuggets) and brick shapes, all of which are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Whether you choose a sheng bincha or tuocha, or opt for a shu brick, you can expect our collection of pu-erh to produce a deeply earthy flavor and sweet, mushroom-like aroma. Sample our mellow shu immediately. Our sheng, a collector’s tea, will only appreciate in fermented flavor and financial value with time. Reserve a leisurely morning—or a table of family or friends—for the enjoyment of your pu-erh, as each variety promises up to ten steepings.
