Puerh Earl Grey pairs light and dark, day and night. Any tea drinker will recognize the citrusy bergamot front flavor; puerh is aged and fermented Chinese tea, often described as dark, musty, or earthy. So, the ingredients hold opposite ends of the flavor spectrum. The bergamot shines through the darkness, while elevating the puerh earthiness into the realm of floral aromatics. As a result, our Puerh Earl Grey wins praise—both from puerh lovers, and from folks who usually steer clear. Drink it from either direction: a brighter puerh tea, or a deep and rich Earl Grey.
Fermented tea has probiotic qualities, making it gentler on the stomach, and giving the drinker a fuller, more satisfied feeling. Puerh is also good for multiple steeps, so you can brew 2 or 3 cups with every serving of this tea.
Our shou puerh comes from Jingmai Mountain in southern Yunnan, where the Dai people have hand-picked the ancient tea trees for millennia. These trees range from 700 to 1,000 years old. And since they grow in a natural rainforest, the tea leaves provide a wide range of antioxidants and nutrients. One more reason to love this new classic.
