Our Fair Trade Shou Pu'er Tea (熟普洱) 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.
Please see our Brewing Guidelines for more information.
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.
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!
