Pu erh tea

Harvested from young, old and wild trees from Yunnan, China and allowed to age naturally, developing complexity, depth and notes of sandalwood over time.

wild pu'erh (Yunnan, China)

Smooth like silk, with an alluring aroma of nectarine and aftertaste of spearmint and liquorice that lingers on the palate. Mostly single tree harvests from wild old trees that are at least a few hundred years old.
