Shu Pu-erh Looseleaf 2016

$108.00
| /

This shu-style pu-erh tea—often well-liked by coffee drinkers—is made from spring-picked leaves that have been exposed to moisture during processing, in order to jump-start fermentation and its resulting deepening of flavor and fragrance. Produced in Yunnan Province in 2016, it brews up rich and smooth, with an earthy aroma and pleasant notes of sweet grain.

To prepare, rinse the leaves briefly with boiling water, then infuse multiple times, tracing the arc of flavor and fragrance throughout.

This tea is excellent, full bodied and rich. I have a pot every morning and it's very satisfying!

New to fine tea exploration

I am a foodie and had to give up coffee a year ago. I have always loved tea and incorporated it into my routine but this year I have gone in head first exploring with teas, reading books about tea, etc. This particular tea is the first one to 'blow my mind' as to the diversity of varieties. I havent tasted a tea like this.. This one is altogether rich yet subtle, earthy but sweet and hard to compare to anything else. The thickness of the steep is amazing. This tea is friendly, plum like AMD seems like it is blended with a spice but it isn't. Great black or with milk/cream. It turns purpleish with cream. I tried a subtle amount of sugar as well as some local honey and the character completely changes. Three steepings with this tea are no problem. This tea would be a favorite among Hobbits.

I'm enjoying Shu Pu-erh tea very much!!
I was surprised to see the color and thought it was going to be strong but it wasn't strong. It's delicious and smooth.

An excellent tea with a mild earthiness and natural sweetness. It's great hot or cold, with cream or without. I'm now drinking this every day.
