Pu-erh tastes smoothly sweet and distinctly earthy, with a lingering, deep flavor. It brews a red liquor.

Pu-erh, known in old Chinese as "black tea", is tea that is actually fermented. The particularly large leaves can be either oxidized ("cooked") or nonoxidized ("raw"). Pu-erh can be loose-leaf or compressed into the traditional round cakes (known as bing cha).. The leaves can also be infused several times.

The large leaves used in the manufacture of highest-quality pu-erh are plucked from the long-lived tea bushes that grow abundantly in southern Yunnan Province. The leaf used to make both cooked and raw pu-erh cakes is sun-dried leaf. To achieve the distinctive flavor and aroma of pu-erh, the tea is heaped into piles and a controlled amount of moisture is introduced to the leaves. As the bacterial process begins to affect the nature of the tea, the piles are carefully turned and monitored as heat begins to generate within the pile. The heat combined with moisture encourages the natural bacterial fermentation integral to the tea's character and flavor.

Pu-erh Tea

Just read a book about it, had to have it. It is indeed the smoothest tasting tea I have tasted, none of the bitterness of other varieties. It is wonderful!!

Very disappointed; this tea lacked any distinctive flavor or aroma.

Hi Kent, thanks for sharing your thoughts! We're sorry to hear you're not experiencing the rich, earthly flavors that our Pu-erh normally tastes like. We recommend increasing the amount of tea per cup, as the leaves are larger than usual. However, we don't want you to keep a product you're not fully satisfied with; you can contact our Customer Service team at help@stashtea.com, and a representative will be happy to help with a return or exchange. Thanks for shopping Stash Tea!

Wonderful tea:)

This is one of my favorite teas, tastes great with honey and milk and is very robust and complex in flavor. I love this tea when I'm wanting to unwind after a long day and I know a coffee beverage will leave me too wired on caffeine. I've also found it great for helping me digest a heavy meal.

Pu-erh Tea

I love the subtle flavours in this tea. I have it in the morning, hot and in the afternoon I like it with mint a little cooler.
