Pu'erh Shu (ripe) is a type of Chinese tea made from one year aged tea leaves. It has a complex flavour profile, with deep notes of earthiness, richness and smoothness. The aging process contributes to its unique flavour and a more meaningful tea experience.
Ingredients:Black Tea (Pu'erh style)
Origin:China - Yunnan Province
Grade: Pu'erh Shu - Ripe
About: Pu'erh is manufactured from máochá, a largely unoxidized green tea grown in China's Yunnan province. It offers numerous health benefits and a rounded earthy flavour that gets better with age. Unlike traditional teas in which 2 young leaves and a bud are plucked from the bush, 3-4 leaves and a bud are plucked, yielding older, broader leaves more suitable to the fermentation process. Once fermented, the best Peers are aged like fine wine in the cellar of a French chateau, or cheese on the rack of a Swiss barn. The result is an earthy, musty character that sets the tea apart from its younger competitors.
Brewing: Always use freshly boiled water. The taste will vary depending on the amount of tea used and how long it is steeped. Longer = stronger. If left too long the tea may also turn bitter.
Allergen Information: We import our teas and ingredients from around the world. Some may have been prepared in an environment which handles nuts and other allergens.
