Our Organic Shou Pu'er Tea (普洱) is grown and produced by members of the Wa minority in Lincang, Yunnan — about as close to the birthplace of tea as it's possible to get. This shou pu'er brews smooth and dark, silky and earthy with hints of vanilla. It's a lovely tea: mellow, moderate, and enormously pleasant.

Shou Pu'er is available by 3.75 oz tin or by the pound. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.

Richly textured, short or long steeps

This tea is excellent. It tastes great out of my small clay pot, but if you prefer a western style brew this will do that too. Low acidity. It'll brew very strong or light and subtle depending on water temperature/quantity and time. Resteeps well. For the price, won't be beat.

Smooth, easy-drinking pu'er

This is a super smooth, sweet, easy to drink pu'er! Great for beginners and long-time tea drinkers. Hints of tobacco and chocolate with a thick texture. Very pleasant!

Great tasting tea

Love this, I float between white, green and this one. All very good and enjoy them all. A nice mix of blends depending on time of day and my mood. A must have!

It's Pink!

I made a cupful one recent afternoon, brewed it three minutes, and tasted full deep flavor with not ONE HINT of bitterness. Aesthetic note: if a deep brown brew can have a pink cast to it, this cupful did. Including when I spilled a bit on the white counter.

Rich but not smokey

Rich flavor and dark color but not too smokey, which is the best part. This tea has seen life and is not afraid to be who it is, yet it is not the loudest voice in a conversation. If you are into pu-erh, this is a good option. You can easily get two brews out of the same leaves.

Above and Beyond

I have to say, Little Red Cup is the coolest company I have purchased from in a long time. They sent me a handwritten letter with suggestions on how to best prepare the tea I had purchased from them. It was very sentimental and thoughtful, but even more impressive is their tea! My goodness. I thought I was a coffee drinker until I had REAL tea. Night and day difference! Best Jasmine Tea I have ever tasted in my life.

Full flavored, none bitter black tea.

This is a much better black than other organics I have tried. I drink it without sugar, lemon, milk, etc, so that influences my opinion. Has a warm flavor, holds up well if I reheat my mug. I know, barbarians use mugs. But sometimes I don't want to enjoy the ceremonial pieces, I just want hot tea right now. 5 of 5 on my scale.

An excellent dark tea

Dark, robust yet very mellow.
Also ordered a sampler--a GREAT way to try other stars from Little Red Cup!

Sooo goood!

I’m hooked for life! This is top shelf every day tea. There is a time for toucha and a time for loose leaf and when it’s loose leaf time this tea is where it’s at...wicked good!
