This Award Winning Puer won the Gold Medal at the 2011 Yunnan Government Puer Competition in both categories of Best Fermented Puer and Best Raw Puers. It is hand-picked by Grandma Yang of the Yi tribe in Yunnan. The tea leaves are from ancient, certified organic tea trees on a sustainable tea plantation on Wuliang Mountain. When pressed into cakes they use a special fragrant wood using only the pressure of their hands to press it giving it a truly unique flavor.
2011 (Aged Ripe Puer)
Our Award Winning, certified organic, Ancient Phoenix Fermented Puer now available in a convenient breakaway "chocolate bar" style package, making it easy to take your tea with you! Each square is a single serving and the packaging is 100% recyclable. This tea won the Gold Medal from the Yunnan Government Puer Competition for best Fermented Puer 2011. This fermented puer is the best tasting we have ever tried. It has a truly unique, rich, velvety espresso, unsweetened chocolate, and licorice flavor and smell. The liquor is a rich earth brown that looks like espresso and is very, very thick. The leaves are short, twisted with light and dark brown swirls. Each bar contains 10 pieces of 10-gram servings.
This tea can really settle your stomach as the rich, thick liquor can give a protective coating on the inside. Fermented puer is rich in beneficial bacteria which significantly aids digestion and is relaxing for the stomach. Fermented puer also typically has double the vitamin C of raw puer which happens during the cooking process. It is thought to also reduce clogging of the arteries due to eating fatty foods.*
