Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
Smooth, offers hints of nuts and cocoa.

Large leaves from the sub varietal Camellia assamica, locally known as Yunnan Big Leaf, are the source for our lot of organically grown Imperial Pu-erh. Typically made in the warmer summer months when the higher temperatures will assist in the fermentation process, the large, wet leaves ferment, building tastes, are torn and shaped and then fired drying the leaves and locking in flavors.

Tea Facts
As there is no grading system to guide on in selecting ripe Pu-erhs, a satisfying taste is the defining characteristic. Enough moisture has been left in the leaves that they will continue to ferment building deeper flavors. Pu-erh drinkers believe these teas will lower blood cholesterol and prevents bad cholesterol (LDL) from forming in the arteries.

Tasting Notes
Our Imperial is smooth and sweet, offering hints of nuts and cocoa. Aroma is herbaceous, some floral notes and earthy. Cups to deep, red-amber color with an underlying hardiness that will leave a rich aftertaste that can be quite appealing to coffee drinkers. Yet, it is moderate in caffeine.
