Product Description

A special tea renowned in China for its medicinal value. Grown in the Yunnan province, Pu-erh tea has been popular in that region since the Tang Dynasty when Pu-erh was taken for relief of indigestion and more recently reducing cholesterol. This tea is semi fermented with a typically earthy taste. Its prominent woody character, with hints of herb and elemental flavour, is unusual amongst China Teas which are usually light and floral. This is the result of the post-fermentation process unique to Pu-Erh.

Black Tea

Tasting Notes

Raw umber with dark browns, dark greens and some light brown specks. Old leather smell. Infused leaf is dark brown with purple blue hues. A tea that is deep chocolate with violet in colour (colour and profundity of richly brewed coffee). Bouquet of smoked damp herbs, earth, and mushrooms. There is a smoky taste in the front palate and mid palate, then a sweet aftertaste in the back palate. On swallowing, it is spicy and sweet. A tea that is opulent, stately and persuasive.
