Shou Puerh

(2 customer reviews)


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


Shou Puerh, or “ripe” puerh tea, presents a bold, earth-like flavor with a smooth texture. Not bitter or astringent, making it rather forgiving to brew. You will notice its dark depth of color in both the leaves and the liquor. Whole leaf rather than pressed, and 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.

    Perfect balance of earthy, strong not bitter and deliciously smooth tea. I crave it when I have to drink regular 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.

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

Best store in Montana possibly in all of the United States. I don't know. This is the first Gong Fu tea shop I've ever been to. I came in for a matcha whisk because I donated mine to a museum. Before I left a random customer who was introduced to me as a regular bought me tea. I hugged him which isn't something I normally do. But I was incredibly thankful. Then the man behind the counter gave me a free sample. I went in looking for a simple tool and left with tea and a happy spirit. I am looking forward to making it back as soon as possible! I loved it. I think it will always hold a special place in my blood pumping organ.

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.

Amazing tea! Beyond my expectations and well worth the stop! Delightful service and amazing blends! If you are in the area I would highly recognize them. I will be ordering blends online-they are so good!
