Pu-erh Tea (Pu'er) 普洱 & Hei Cha 黑茶
Pu-erh Tea is the most exquisite art of tea drinking. It is a traditional Chinese specialty that is produced in the Yunnan province where the land grows wild tea trees that are hundred to thousands of years old. The production of this variety involves steaming and pressing the leaves, then allowing time for full fermentation and oxidation of the tea, which can take up to several months. Comparative to fine wine, Pu-erh teas have a collectible value which increases over time, as the flavours and textures of the tea evolve and become more complex. Treasure Green offers a rare selection of Pu-erh with teas from the 1970’s.
Hei Cha is a famous aged tea from the GuangXi province. It is comparable to Pu Erh, carrying an earthy, smooth flavour, and works to improve digestion, reduce fat, and expel dampness from the body.
