This high-quality raw Puerh Tea(Pu'erh Sheng) is a signature tea made from 100% spring tea bud and tea leaves of Gushu old tea over 100 years from Jingmai, Yunnan province. The aged tea trees grow in the wild Jingmai Mountain in Yunnan.

( Gushu aged tea trees over 100 years)


Jingmai Mountain is representative of the Puerh production area and is known as the "10,000 acres of ancient tea garden".The ecological environment is good, with clouds and mist lingering in the mountains and a vast sea of clouds under the mountains. There are all kinds of wild mushrooms, plants, and moss etc.,  This ecological diversity also results in the tea produced in Jingmai having a rich and special aroma.

This Sheng Pu Erh was made in 2008. So far,  this Pu'er tea has been aged for 16 years. After the tea cake has been aged for more than ten years, it reaches the middle stage of tea. At this time, the honey aroma of the tea becomes more intense and the aging charm begins to appear, reaching a new level of drinking.

About the Puerh tea:

The Chinese tea history of Puerh tea is fascinating. Puerh tea is one of the oldest types of tea in China with a rich history of over 1700 years that can be traced back to the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220 AD). During its height of popularity Puerh tea was freely traded and even used as money for the bartering of goods. Premium Puerh tea was offered as a tribute tea to the Emperor of China and to this day Puerh tea remains a highly valuable commodity. Puerh tea is revered in China as a traditional medicinal tea with many health benefits.

About the Raw Puerh(sheng Puerh ):

The Sheng Puerh tea was said to have roots in the Tibetan tea trade, dating back all the way to the Tang Dynasty. The Tibetan plateau could not produce their teas, so they were dependent on what Chinese traders could offer. To make the teas last the months-long journey, the teas from Yunnan were all pressed into cakes and bricks for the sake of portability, which were then fermented during the months-long journey to Tibet. From there, the Sheng Puerh tea was made. Now, the rarest Sheng Puerh teas are being fermented for up to 30 years for the highest quality.

Unlike other teas that should ideally be consumed shortly after production, Puerh can be drunk immediately or aged for many years; Puerh teas are often now classified by year and region of production much like wine vintages. The Puerh tea leaf gets better and results in a rich flavor during the aging process.

Puerh is biologically very similar to modern green tea. It presents vegetal and fruity flavors and aromas. Unlike Ripe (Shou) Puerh, it doesn't have an earthy or mushroomy taste. This is a tea that can present a face of bitterness and astringency that quickly escapes into a natural sweetness.

Raw Puerh tea has the characteristic of "getting more fragrant with age". The change from new tea to old tea every year can give people a different drinking experience.

Storage:4 key elements for storing Puerh: light, temperature, humility, airflow (Store in a ventilated, dry, avoid sunlight, exposure, no smell, no pollution environment)

Protect against the tide, should be stored in an odor-free environment,and low temperature. The flavor and color of Puerh Tea change when properly stored over a while; fresh raw tea brews into a bright, yellowish broth and possesses a strong, almost harsh flavor; aged raw tea brews an amber broth and possesses a mellow flavor. Fresh ripe tea brews into a bright red broth possessing a smooth mellow flavor; old ripe tea brews dark red with a thick mellow flavor. The flavor, quality, and value of Puerh tea constantly increase over time with proper storage, and the longer the better.

Brew method: 

Recommended teapot: Gaiwan/ Yixing teapot. We strongly recommend you try a Yixing teapot to brew aged raw pu erh for some reason. The reason why the Yixing purple clay teapot has the function of "improvement and fragrance retention" is mainly determined by the characteristics of the purple clay clay. The purple clay teapot is a porous material with a double-pore structure. The pores are very dense and have strong adsorption forces. It can absorb the aroma of tea and keep it for a long time. 

tea to water ratio: 1: 20, preheat the teaware and rinse the tea. First infusion 10s, second infusion 5-10s, third infusion 5-10s, fourth infusion 15s, fifth 15-20s, after five infusions, please appropriately increase your steeping time. You can brew over 10 times at least.

Puerh tea, one of the six types of tea, from the Camellia Sinensis plant, has been cherished as a healthy fermented tea full of benefits for both the palate and the body for centuries. Many puerh tea drinkers start their aged tea journey because puerh tea benefits their physical and mental health.
