I bought this packet of Puerh Tea for £4.99 at the Real Foods shop on Broughton Street.
According to the packet, Numi’s Emperor’s Puerh is picked from wild-harvested, organic tea trees that are 500 years old, in Yunnan, China.
The Journal of Chinese Medicine states that puerh is a compressed, aged and post-fermented green tea that is one of the only teas that is ‘laid down’, like fine wine, to improve with age. More information about Pu-erh is availablle on the Wikipedia. There’s an interesting YouTube video about it’s production.
The tea has a refreshing and nice taste, but comes with a musty odour.
