Pu-erh

$6.00$9.80

Pu-erh (poo-yair) is a VERY hardy Black tea. Some may say… an acquired taste. It comes from the bold leaf tea which is from the providence of Yunnan in China. It’s an “aged tea”, which means as a result of it’s oxidation process it actually gets smoother and “better” over time. Where most teas will lose taste and quality with time. It has a very EARTHY taste. In part because it’s “composted” ( …yes I said composted) during the finial phase of processing. Lower in tannins than other blacks it doesn’t tend to become bitter when steeped. Actually the longer you steep it the STRONGER it becomes. This is the “wine” of teas… at least in concept.

Like a fine wine, pu-erh gets better with time. If you want to try a sample with your order, feel free to ask us. I love it, but it really is an acquired taste. When I smell and taste it I can only think of one thing…. for me to know and you to find out.

DescriptionPu-erh (poo-yair) is a VERY hardy Black tea. Some may say... an acquired taste. It comes from the bold leaf tea which is from the providence of Yunnan in China. It's an "aged tea", which means as a result of it's oxidation process it actually gets smoother and "better" over time. Where most teas will lose taste and quality with time. It has a very EARTHY taste. In part because it's "composted" ( ...yes I said composted) during the finial phase of processing. Lower in tannins than other blacks it doesn't tend to become bitter when steeped. Actually the longer you steep it the STRONGER it becomes. This is the "wine" of teas... at least in concept. Like a fine wine, pu-erh gets better with time. If you want to try a sample with your order, feel free to ask us. I love it, but it really is an acquired taste. When I smell and taste it I can only think of one thing.... for me to know and you to find out. SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Gunpowder Green Tea from China. This tea is growing in popularity, a little naturally on the bitter side. The leaves are rolled into small balls while wet, giving it a unique characteristic. These small balls resemble "gun pellets" which one might say "gunpowder tea" obtained its name from. After pouring the hot water on these little balls of fire - watch them unfold into a slightly bitter brew. Remember green teas don't usually like that boiling water - so take the pot to the tea, which will cool it down enough for the "greens". And only steep those 1-2 minutes. Gunpowder is a tad bitter on its own, so don't think you brewed it too long :) NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Honeybush is similar to Rooibos in that it comes from South Africa. It's referred to as "The other red-tea". Being CAFFEINE FREE, it makes a "sweet" night time tea. Harvested from the Eastern Cape- Honeybush is slightly sweeter than Rooibos and actually has a fine scent of honey... is also GREAT cold! Honeybush flowers emit a distinct "honey" scent and is harvested during their flowering season, thus it's name! NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20We use this as our Oolong base for flavoring. Being from Formosa, which only means it came from Taiwan, it has that characteristic rough rolled brown leaf. This Oolong is closer to our base Black tea from Sri Lanka giving it a solid woodsy taste on its own. GREAT with some JASMINE!!!! Our Formosa is a darker brew and very woodsy, so be careful adding some of the more subtle flavors and herbs- they can be overtaken by that woodsy flavor. NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Produced in China and Formosa (Taiwan), Lapsang Souchong has a very "smoky" smell making it one of the most distinctive Black teas out there. This is also called the "man tea" of teas. Can also be used to bring hardcore coffee drinkers over to the light side... The flavor and aroma come from the drying of these leaves over the smoke of pine needles or pinewood. The brew is a rich and dark and actually a smooth taste. After smelling it, one might think it would make a "tarry" tea and the lower qualities do... not ours! NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money! SERVINGS Small: Loose 15 / Bags 10 Large: Loose 30 / Bags 20Chun Mee is our China Green Tea. In contrast to the Japanese Greens, it has a sweeter after taste. Also called the "Eyebrow Tea" because many of the leaves processed are hand rolled and thus can curl up. Most Chun Mee teas exported are processed in part by machines, so the true hand rolling of all Chun Mee teas may be a bit exaggerated, but they do have a curled and Dryer appearance in contrast to the Sencha (Japan). NO FRILLS PACKAGING means you'll get your tea in a Glassine Lined bag instead of the fancy labeled "normal canister or package" AND we add a little more tea for less money!
