Shou Puerh Tea
Shou Puerh Tea from Yunnan province has bold flavor with a smooth texture. This puerh is whole leaf rather than pressed. A cup of this tea offers a rich, deep puerh with a full body taste.
This exquisite tea comes from Jingmai Mountain in Yunnan. The Dai people have hand picked this tea from the ancient tea trees for millennia. Shou Puerh comes from a region in southern Yunnan where the 700 to 1,000 year old ancient tea trees grow. Because the ancient tea trees grow in a natural, rainforest environment, the leaf provides a unique combination of rich antioxidants and nutrients.
In addition, this farm is located along the ancient tea horse trade route. Tea was traded for horses with neighboring countries. As the tea was transported over the many miles and treacherous passes, the tea fermented and developed layers of complexity. These are two characteristics puerh tea has even today.
This puerh is a great tea to use while brewing kombucha.
