Pu'erh is a large leafed tea from the Yunnan province in China The earliest record of pu erh tea dates to the Tang Dynasty (618 AD - 906 AD) when it was the drink of nobleman.

The tea derives its name from the market town of Pu'erh, where it was originally processed and sold. It is said that the unique taste of pu erh tea was developed because it took weeks to transport the tea leaves by horseback to the town to be processed. During this transportation period the tea leaves would begin to ferment in the humidity and release a strong, fragrant aroma, which is how the Pu’erh tea was created.

This selective and vibrant mixture of 23 compressed RAW (brew amber in colour) and RIPE (brew reddish purple in colour) aged teacakes comes from the Yunnan province, China. Each 4-gram infuser sized teacake has been mixed with subtle flower flavourings including rose, chrysanthemum, osmanthus, ginseng bud, Sanchi flower, jasmine, peach flowers, lotus, medlar, and chengpin.

Each tea has been individually wrapped for slower fermentation and are packaged in delightfully embroidered coloured cotton sacks.
