Yunnan, China Yunnan province, found at the southwesternmost corner of China, is considered the place of origin for the tea plant. It is home to the famous Puer teas and is renowned for its biodiversity, ethnic diversity and breathtaking mountains.
Puer tea is named for the town of Puer where teas from the surrounding mountains were brought, pressed into bricks and cakes and sent across the continent.
To reach its destination, the tea traveled through a range of climates and weather, often by horse and camelback. For this reason, Puer became known for having an aged, earthy quality. Nowadays, this earthy character can be encouraged through a process known as Wu Doi. Tea leaves are moistened, (wu) and stacked (dui) in piles, undergoing post-fermentation.
A very dark, earthy, sweet, smooth infusion that does not gain bitterness in steeping. Its clear aroma and red-gold color brings to mind a topaz gemstone.
Brewing: Steep one teaspoon in eight ounces of near boiling water for three minutes. Can be re-infused many times over.
100% organic puer tea leaves.
