Barrel Aged Puer – Ecological Collection
Aged in Pinot Noir wine casks, our Barrel Aged Puer is smooth and earthy with a ripe fruit character.
Puer teas are named for the town of Puer, where, historically, tea was pressed into bricks and cakes and sent out across the continent in the tea trade. To reach their destinations, teas traveled though a range of climates and weather, often by horse and camelback. For this reason, Puer became known for an aged, earthy quality that developed along the way. Nowadays, this earthy character is encouraged by a ‘Wo Dui’ process. Puer tea leaves are moistened (wo) with water and stacked (dui) in piles to undergo a unique post-fermentation giving the tea a dark, inky color and a rich, smooth flavor.
Ingredients: Puer Tea Leaves.
