PLACE OF ORIGIN:

picked up from small leaves, an extremely rare and beautifully aged loose leaf cooked Puer from the 2000's, riped by fermentation. Puer shu tea is a macrobiotically fermented tea obtained through the action of molds, bacteria and yeasts on the harvested leaves of the tea plant. It is thus truly a fermented tea, whereas teas known in the west as black teas (known in China as Red teas) have only undergone large scale-oxidation through naturally occurring tea plant enzymes. Mislabelling the oxidation process as fermentation and thus naming black teas, such as Assam, Darjeeling or Keemun, as fermented teas has created endless confusion. Only tea, such as aged Puer Shu, that has undergone microbial processing can correctly be called a fermented tea.

aged Puer Shu is generally expected to be served in Gongfu style, generally in Yixing (clay, ceramic or porcelain) teaware or in a type of Chinese teacup called a gaiwan. Optimum temperatures for are generally regarded to be around 95 °C for quality. The tea is steeped for 12 to 30 seconds in the first few infusions, increasing to 2 to 10 minutes in the last infusions. The prolonged steeping sometimes used in the west can produce dark, bitter, and unpleasant brews. Quality aged Puer can yield many more infusions, with different flavor nuances when brewed in the traditional Gong Fu method.
