This Award Winning Puer won the Gold Medal at the 2011 Yunnan Government Puer Competition in both categories of Best Fermented and Raw Puers. It is hand-picked by the Yi Tribe of Yunnan. The tea leaves are from ancient, certified organic tea trees on a sustainable tea plantation on Wuliang Mountain.
2011 Spring (Aged Ripe Puerh Tea)
This fermented puer (Ripe Puer) is one of the best tasting we have ever tried. It has a truly unique, rich espresso and mushroom unsweetened chocolaty flavor and smell. The liquor is a rich earth brown that looks like espresso and is thick. The leaves are short, twisted with light and dark brown swirls.
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.*
