Pu-Erh is a true specialty tea, the exception to the rule in that it gets better with age. Pu-Erh is currently one of the most talked about and sought after teas in China and abroad. It has always been considered a "tribute" or gift tea. Premium tea leaves are partially dried then buried / fermented according to the ancient and still secret tradition, to make this highly distinctive tea with rich earthy tastes and aromas which are hard to describe. The Chinese have always considered it the supreme Black Tea for healing properties related to digestion, the blood and liver.

Studies in the West have shown that it, in fact, reduces cholesterol.

Green Pu-Erh Loose Leaf
Pu-Erh Old Tree Green ~ Loose Leaf

Mao Cha Old Tree Pu-erh is a special find made from 50 to 100 year old Yunnan tea trees.  It is made similarly to white teas - withered in the sun for a few hours, then dried in a heated room at about 90°. The leaf is left to age where natural oxidation and fermentation from the organisms in the tea leaf create it's unique flavor.  Because of this process it has more of a green tea characteristic and is considered 'raw' (Mao Cha).  It is a complex tea, slightly 'sweet', with a lingering aftertaste.

Premium tea leaves are partially dried then buried in clay according to the ancient and still secret tradition, to make this highly distinctive tea with rich earthy tastes and aromas which are hard to describe.  This Super Grade was produced in 2010. Great care was taken to find the best leaf material to make this tea, it is good now and we believe it will age perfectly if you care to keep it for a few years prior to drinking it.

Pu-Erh Loose Leaf Black Tea
Pu-Erh Yunnan - Loose Leaf
This is a young (two year old), loose leaf Yunnan Black Tea made in the Pu-Erh style. Because it is a cross between a typical Yunnan and Pu-Erh, it has a lighter Pu-Erh flavor and aroma but still a Yunnan undertone. Smooth in the cup and definitely worth trying as a hearty, but flavorful all day tea.
