Thumbnail of Kunming Black Pu-erh
Yunnan Chitsu Pingcha is produced from pu-erh tea through a process of special fermentation, aging, steaming and compressing. It's characterized by a bright red-yellow infusion, pure-high aroma and sweet mellow taste. It promotes digestion, is thirst-quenching and is even used to cure hang-overs. Drinking daily may also aide in weight-loss.
Thumbnail of Black Pu-Erh: Mandarin Orange
In some parts of China, a popular custom is to give oranges as a gift on special occasions. The reason is that in Chinese, the word for orange sounds like "Ji" which means "good luck." One of the things you'll notice about this tea when you brew it is the absence of the heavy musty flavor characteristic of traditional pu-erh. Certainly this character is still there but it is layered beneath sweet notes of citrus, the result of being packed in the mandarin orange before fermentation. As the tea ages, it absorbs the flavor of the peel.
Thumbnail of Topaz Puerh
A cooked style pu-er, made at one of the few certified organic tea gradens in central Yunnan. Can endure many steepings, and does not become astringent. We don't expect it to gain any flavor change over time, so this is one to drink when you buy it!

A very strong puerh is blended with peppermint, clove, and licorice root to create a brew that is strong yet incredibly smooth. The additional ingredients add a tingly spicy note to the cup.
