More than a thousand years ago, tea travelled across many borders in Asia for the enjoyment of emperors and everyday people alike. As the passage often required months to reach some destinations, additional fermentation would naturally occur along the journey and the ripened nature of the pu-er leaves would produce a bittersweet flavour that was highly prized like an aged fine wine.
Dark teas from the Yunnan highlands; a special collection of vintage Sheng and woodfire Shou, famous for their history and curative properties. Wild post-fermented leaves with a taste of the earthy and bold and mellow, cultivated with herbal florals for balance. Sweet golden peony, delicate rose, soothing lavender, cooling chrysanthemum and pure maocha. Detoxifying qualities work to stimulate digestion, aid weight loss and help eliminate cholesterol. Bring home the mystery of the Yunnan mountains with a cup of wild, handpicked pu-er.
