About Wild Puer:

Wild Puer is comprised of small compressed pieces that make for easy brewing. Just add 3 or more chunks to your cup or teapot and steep.

In making the Puer, tea leaves are processed with a fair amount of moisture so as to allow a natural fermentation to occur and darken their color. Some tea processors will let the leaves undergo this fermentation for a month to achieve the desired flavor. This style of puer is called the Wo-dui style, or cooked leaf style puer.

Ingredients: Puer tea leaves.

Flavor Profile:

Earthy flavors of birch bark, brazil nut and tamarind.
