This rich earthy flavored tea from the Yunnan province has been aged for five years. Although Pu’erh is sometimes referred to as dark, or black tea, this type of tea is completely different from what in the West is called a "black tea.") In China it is famed for its medicinal qualities. Priced per 2oz.
Ruby Black – Nepalese Style
RUBY BLACK – NEPALI- STYLE PU’ERH High-grown teas are said to the best. The Ilam region of Nepal, at elevations of 4,000 to 7,000 feet in the Himalayas produces a young tea with very high concentrations of flavor and healthy antioxidants. The culture of the Nepali-style aged ruby black tea is unique to Jasbirey Village. This fine black tea is made via the art of post-fermentation. The tea is processed via the standard oxidation process, then allowed to mature for at least one year. The teas are kept inside the storage bins or jute bags under normal high elevation weather conditions, prevalent in the Sandakphu foothills. Tea masters then make weekly tastings of this tea to determine the optimal time for firing. Our Ruby Black is bold, yet smooth, with a lasting gentle finish. This distinctive, invigorating tea has received high rankings on Steepster. Priced per 2oz.
