Shou Puerh


A full-bodied puerh from Yunnan Province, China. It harbors a bold, earthy flavor and smooth texture. A great alternative to coffee!


Shou Puerh

Shou Puerh, also known as “ripe” puerh tea, has a bold, earth-like flavor with a smooth texture. It does not easily become over bitter or astringent, making it rather forgiving to brew. You will notice its dark depth of color in both the leaves and the liquor. This puerh is whole leaf rather than pressed, and the leaves can be brewed multiple times. A cup of this tea offers a rich, full-bodied taste, making it a good alternative for those wanting to steer away from coffee.

This tea comes from Jingmai Mountain, in the Yunnan province of China, where tea trees grow in a natural, rainforest environment. The farm this tea comes from is located along the ancient tea horse trade route, where trade between tea and horses took place centuries ago. As the tea was transported over many miles and treacherous passes (often carried by people on foot), the tea fermented and developed layers of complexity. Although puerh tea is not traded in the same way, this complexity has been maintained over time. Puerh tea today is just as exotic and nuanced as it was during ancient trade route days, and still boasts the rich flavors of the past.

Consider using this tea to brew kombucha.

Hand picked from the ancient tea trees of Jingmai Mountain.

Organic Chinese puerh tea.

I've been going to Lake Missoula Tea Company for years, and recently have had the privilege of putting some of their tea in my store. The quality of the tea is fantastic, and the blends are delightful. I have also attended one of their tasting / learning events and it was great. I highly recommend their downtown store for meeting with friends, family or even just for a nice place to go and have a cup of perfectly brewed tea.

What a wonderful shop! I've been in with my whole family a few times and it's just such a treat smelling teas, and learning new things. The lady behind the counter was extremely helpful for us newbies and she is so knowledgeable. During our last visit we tried the tea service and spent some time just enjoying cups of tea. The whole experience was a pleasure. 100% this is the best place to get tea in Missoula, and if you don't know anything about tea it's even better!

Amazing variety great prices and they'll brew top shelf teas you may be reluctant to buy before trying for a dollar more. Great selection for Missoula. Friendly knowledgeable staff and beautiful tea sets and accessories

We are major tea snobs and I was absolutely delighted by this store. There are the usual suspects as well as shelves of unique, hand-picked teas. Highly recommend the Golden Snail :) It was really special being able to try whatever tea I wanted before buying. I'm looking forward to subscribing to their tea club. I would love to come back: everything was delicious.
