 Home Store "Jia Cang" Loose Leaf Black Puer 2008

More than one third of Yunnan teas are grown in Xishuangbana, the region where puer tea originated over a thousand years ago. Puer tea was named after Puer City, the city in Xishuangbana where this category of tea was first traded. Our Jia Cang Puer comes from Xishuangbana, and is fermented in a special process that creates a dark, smooth tea in 60 days. This black puer processing method was developed in the early 1970's as a quicker alternative to aging green puer. Depending on humidity and temperature, green puer requires 10 to 20 years of aging to change from a robust, heavy flavor to a smooth and slippery taste.

Aged puer tea has greater health benefits and a sweeter taste, so Chinese people like to store some puer tea at home for later use. Our Jia Cang Puer (Home Store Puer) is made in the most popular style for everyday use and for storage. The medium-sized leaves provide for a deep, robust flavor. The color is dark brown with reddish overtones. This tea is both sweet and rich without earthiness.
