Detail

A very fine crop, with many buds for this very particular type of tea. 

Its powerful flavor is reminiscent of damp soil and bark. Long woody, liquorice notes.

Very supple and harmonious. Clean notes with a very supple texture.

Pu-Erh means "trouser bottom" in Chinese. According to a Chinese folk tale, the tea pickers keep the best leaves for themselves, hiding them in their pockets to take home. Pu Er tea is highly regarded in Chinese medicine for its curative properties. It is said to lower cholesterol levels, dissolve fat, aid in digestion, improve blood circulation and reduce the effects of alcohol. This tea improves with age, owing to the specific type of fermentation that affects the tannins.

Your opinion

From LORI | On 5/8/15 I didn't care for the first cup of this, it was very strongly earthy tasting. Then I recalled that I drink another pu-erh that advises rinsing the leaves with hot water and draining before making your cup. I tried that and now I love it. You can brew the leaves at least twice with good strong flavor.
