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.
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.
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!
