Lesser quality puerh teas tend to be rather heavy and musty, but you'll find this blend has a wonderfully clear, sweet freshness, adding a bit of a kick to the famously full-bodied brew.

  • Ingredients

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

The Only Fermented Tea

Puerh's unique among tea for its processing methods: the leaves are packed into "cakes" and kept in a warm, dark room where they gradually ferment. The final tea has a distinctively earthy flavour that's considered an acquired taste. We think it's definitely one worth acquiring…
