Pu Erh from the Chinese Yunnan province, with the leaves pressed into little balls. The slighlty earthy taste is very delicate, enriched with a significant taste of walnut and sweetness. the colour of the infusion, depending on the steeping parametres, may be from brown to dark-brown. One serving of the leaves (one ball) may be steeped multiple times. Our suggestion is one ball per teacup.
Pu Erh Sheng tea (fresh, raw, ripening), made from the leaves of old, wild-growing tea trees from the Lao jungle. In the production process the leaves are presses in bamboo forms into a cigar-like shape. The taste of the subsequent steepigs is crowned with a fruity aftertaste. Tea suitable for numerous steepings.
Dark Pu Erh tea in its most traditional form - Sheng, which means naturally maturing tea, with leaves compresed into a shape of a nest. Its taste changes with time, such teas are meant to be stored for years to enjoy the changing qualities - from the freshness similar to green tea, until a deep, sweet taste after years of storing. Due to natural fermentation of the leaves this tea is believed to have a benefitial effect on the body.
