Pu-erh Tea & Hei Cha (“dark” tea)
Excellent old-growth puerh tea sourced by Global Tea Hut on their trip to Jingmai with Master Tsai, who has a long-standing friendship with the family who makes this tea. Snow, our guide, went ahead a month earlier to supervide the entire process and make sure that we got fresh spring tea, and that they chose from the older trees in the forest for our cakes. These cakes are all from old trees, ranging in age from 200 to 800 years. The tea is stunning, with a powerful and vibrant Qi that takes you directly to the forest. Proceeds from the sale of this tea are destined for Light Meets Life, a free tea and zen center in Taiwan. Order 250 grams to receive full cake.

This sheng puerh is from Da Hu Sai village in Lincang. The leaves are harvested from 100 to 200-hundred-year-old trees, which means it is on the younger side of what is considered gushu or “old-growth puerh”. The trees are all chemical-free, grown naturally in forest gardens with very little human intervention

Stone pressed Jingmai from natural tea gardens (Shengtaiyuan) among the highest in Jingmai (a candidate for World Heritage Site), using one bud and 2 leaves from trees that are 30 to 50 years old. Standard tea plantations used to predominate in Jingmai, but in recent years they admirably decided to eliminate about 80% of the tea bushes to leave the remaining ones sufficient space to grow and planted other trees to ensure good biodiversity and stabilize the soil, without the use of fertilizers or pesticides, thus converting them into natural tea gardens which one day will become ancient tea gardens.

These purple puerh buds can be considered both puerh tea and white tea because while the leaves come from the large leaf puerh varietal, the simple, sun-dried processing makes it actually a white tea.

These buds differ greatly from Silver Tips because they come from a different varietal of camellia tea tree that grows in Western Yunnan. The buds are picked in early spring and sun-dried. After brewing this tea one can play with buds, picking them apart gently… Marvel at the fractal layers of unopened buds that are contained in a single bud. We’ve counted 9!
