An ancient tea from Yunnan, Pu-erh's earthy pleasures have a passionate group of followers. This particular version is a dark, savory cooked pu-erh and makes for a striking brew. Brigitte Harney is especially a fan. This Pu-Erh is a Shou style. Shou Pu-Erh is differentiated from sheng Pu-Erh in that it is fermented before it is packaged, compressed or sold for consumption.

Ingredients : black tea.

 Details: Pu-Erhs are the only truly fermented teas, and they are made in the remote Yunnan Province (where the first tea plants were found). For the traditional method (aka green, raw, and sheng), the tea leaves are made and then stored. Then, naturally occurring yeast reacts with the dry tea leaves, creating new and changing aromas and flavors. Sort of like sourdough bread, however, it takes years and decades. For this Pu-Erh, the aging and fermentation process has been sped up. The Chinese have used "wo dui" (the moist track). They pile the oxidized leaves into a heap in moist rooms, where the fermentation process is accelerated. This tea can be brewed several times. For each additional brew, please steep tea an extra 15–30 seconds.
 Dry Leaves: Large, twisted, dark brown leaves, with a bit of dust on the leaves.
 Liquor: Dark and murky.
 Aroma: Earthy.
 Flavors: Earthy and the better flavours to be found in a barnyard, like a simple Burgundy red wine. The flavours lighten and sweeten after a few brews.
