A mix of wild tea tree leaves and old garden leaves. The tea has a strong flavour with strong earthy notes. The after taste is sweet and creamy. Due to short fermentation time, this tea has some sheng pu'er like bitterness. This tea is great for storing or to be enjoyed now.
The cake brews approx. 200 bowls of astounding and relaxing tea. Pu’er cake is also a great gift for a friend or relative.
What is pu'er?
Pu’er tea is fermented tea from Yunnan region in China. It is divided in two categories: sheng (raw pu’er) and shou (ripe pu’er). Ripe pu’er is made by wet piling ("wo dui" in Chinese) unpressed raw pu’er to piles approx. 1 meter in height and allowing it to ferment around 45 days. Naturally occurring bacteria and yeast speed up the biochemical processes in the leaves and “matures” it quicker. Shou pu’er was originally develop as a way to mature sheng pu’er more rapidly. Shou pu’er is very interesting and multifaceted tea.
