Pu-erh Tea

(Pronounced pooh-err). These aged teas have been highly favored by the Chinese for centuries. They are now beginning to be known by other tea connoisseurs. Because of their unique manufacturing steps, the enzymatic process continues as the tea ages, which improves the flavor over years. This is the only type of tea whose value goes up as it ages. The flavors range from very earthly with an almost truffle-like appeal to sublimely fresh tasting. These teas have liquors (a technical term that tea tasters use to refer to the finished product, the extract of tea) that vary from golden to dark brown. Twelve Winds Tea Company aged pu-erh teas are exclusively from the Yunnan Province, which is the very birthplace of tea.
