Puerh Tea - Ripe (Shou) Puerh

Regular price $28.00

100g/3.5oz: approx. 85 x 240ml/8oz-cup

Ripe Puerh is a signature tea made from a large leaf varietal grown in Yunnan Province. Only aged tea that comes from this region can be called Puerh tea.

It is the piling of leaves that starts the fermentation process which creates heat and “cooks” the leaves. This adds a highly-prized complexity and depth to the tea, different from the green variety. 

We pick the very high quality ones. It's rich, smoky and woody. The taste will actually get better the longer you store it!

Support weight control


It boosts the breakdown of fat and blocks the formation of fat cells due to high levels of ingredients thought to be active on human fat cells.



Smoothe digestion


The polyphenols in this tea increase blood flow to the intestines and help to regulate bowel movements.



Improve oral health


The phytochemicals can control bacteria and lower the acidity of saliva and dental plaque, hence improving oral health and preventing bad breath.

  • Authentic origin - Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China

    Ideal to grow Puerh tea due to the warm climate, heavy rainfall, hilly areas and uniquely high altitude (>2000m). Grown naturally without human intervention.


  • Aroma

    Earthy and mushroomy. It makes you feel like going back to the stone age where things were raw and primitive.


  • Loose leaves

    Fresh with minimum post-processing, so natural elements and flavours are perserved.

    • Many, many re-steeping times

      Can steep for about 5-7 times for the same amount, much more than all other loose leave tea brands (also, vs 1-2 times for tea bags).


    • Completely whole leaf teas

      Skillfully harvested leaves aren't broken during production. Whole leaves allow water to flow through, enhancing flavors and aromas.


    • No nasties

      Nothing is added - No added colours. No artificial flavours. No preservatives. No additives.


    • More nutritious

      Older tea trees in China naturally retain vitamins and minerals during growth cycles, yielding high-quality and nutrient-rich teas.

Darker than black tea

The liquid color is darker than black tea. I thought the taste would be super strong. Turns out, it's quite mellow and tasty.

Useful

It is very useful to control my weight. I drink puerh after meals and I can feel it helps me to digest food.

Rebrewed many times

I bought this tea and follow the instruction to brew it. After brewing 7 times, the taste of the tea is still great. I love it and I will recommend to my friends to try.
