DESCRIPTION

VINTAGE PU-ERH
organic dark tea/pu-erh (tin)

Revered for its medicinal value, Pu-erh is a dark tea from China’s Yunnan Province that, like a fine wine, can mellow and improve with age. Pu-erh undergoes an artisanal, microbial fermentation process that “ripens” the leaf and creates a bold, earthy character. Bringing to mind the satisfying smell of an old library, our Vintage Pu-erh offers intense aromas of raindrop-saturated earth, rich foliage, wet stone, creamy leather and moss. Many Chinese believe that dark tea carries the most health benefits & acts as a probiotic.

(This tea can also be spelled "pu'erh" or "puerh").

NET WT (per tin): 1.90 oz (54 g)

  1. The most gentle tea you'll ever drink.

    Posted by Knight of Tea on 11th Sep 2019


    This is an absolutely stunning tea! The flavor is smooth and rich, but not harsh. There's none of that green/black tea kick.

    Earthy, old library taste that inspires!

  3. A surprisingly high quality, fantastic ripe pu-erh!

    To be honest, I wasn't expecting much in a pu-erh from a tea shop that doesn't specialize in pu-erh, or at least carry more than a handful of them... but I WAS WRONG. This ripe pu-erh is amazing. None of those unlikable pu-erh characteristics in scent or flavor. It's delicious the entire steep session. Just the pu-erh I was craving yesterday. Two teaspoons is the essential amount for a mug. The scent of the dry leaves is like a bread baked with hay. The flavor is much the same, but with sweetness, starchiness, and even at times a bit of a creamy taste and mouthfeel. I think I could have steeped more than three delicious steeps with these leaves. It's very smooth but at the same time very dark and everything I always want in a great ripe pu-erh. I don't bother with the highest quality pu-erh, but I've had enough pu-erh to know that this one is good enough for me to be a favorite.
    Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug // rinse // 20 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
    Steep #2 // 7 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep
    Steep #3 // just boiled // 5 minute steep
