Slowly sip this ancient tonic, get lost in its earthy aromas and experience the balance of its mild bitterness followed by its sweet aftertaste. Pu-erh tea is a Chinese tea produced in the Yunnan province of China - said to be bursting with health benefits, loaded with antioxidants and powers to aid digestion, stress reduction and weight loss – there’s a lot of power in these tea leaves.

Refined Pu-erh tea

Like a fine wine, Pu-erh tea only gets better with age. When stored properly, beautiful flavours emerge – many have been developing for decades and become incredibly valuable, with some selling for thousands of dollars.

The flavours in our Pu-erh tea will vary slightly, depending on how many years it has been stored and aged for, before we package it, ready for you to drink. Our Pu-Erh stored for 10 years, has a fresh herbaceous aroma. You’ll find it full bodied, with a malty taste, while our Pu-Erh, stored for 20 years is malty with a sweet after taste.

How to drink Pu-erh tea

Pu-erh tea is typically served as part of a traditional ritual called Gong Fu brewing, where the tea is served at hot temperatures and meant to be sipped slowly and delicately. However, thanks to its delightfully mild flavours, Pu-erh can also be extremely refreshing when served cold – drinkers choice!

Often referred to as the after-dinner elixir, a cup of these tea leaves strongly brewed, is thought to be the ultimate sip for digestion. Commonly served with hot water alone, you can also add a little milk to suit your taste buds – creating a nourishing sweet sip.
