We are pleased to offer Tiger Pu-erh 2015 from Kunming, made from the prior year's tea leaves. Since this tea is younger, it yields a milder and brighter tea than ones that have been allowed to age much longer. We enjoy having a variety of Pu-Erhs since they are such a unique category of tea.

Details We always enjoy having a variety of Pu-Erhs to offer since they are such a unique category of tea. Our friend Gordon sent us this Pu-Erh sourced from Kunming, the capital of Yunnan, made in 2015 using the previous years tea leaves. Many Pu-Erhs, this one included, are pressed into cake molds (bing), then prepared for the aging process. Having a younger Pu-Erh will often yield a milder and brighter tea than one that has had more time to age. This is an uncooked Pu-Erh. Caffeine 40-60mg.
