Aged Royal Ripe Pu-erh Tea

Description

Description

Royal Puerh Tea has a particularly proud history in tea lore as it was traditionally served as an annual tribute tea in the imperial court of China. Also known as Vintage Palace Puerh Shu Tea, this WellTea was runner up in the 2009 Tea King Competition held in Shanghai.

The puerh leaves in this WellTea are cultivated in the fields of Menhai in the province of Yunnan, China. After they are plucked, the tea leaves are treated the traditional way: first they are pan fried then dried and left to ferment under the sun’s rays. This process helps the leaves to release their flavour. They are then carefully aged to further develop the taste and aroma. This careful process enables them to be packaged as loose tea without losing any of their potency.

The recommended brewing time for Royal Puerh Tea is seven seconds before being left to stand for eight seconds.

    reminds me of eating dirt as a kid. The smell is very earthy and the taste is complicated. Not my cup of tea, so why give it five stars? I respect this tea and this company. Have you ever tried 35 year old Royal Pu-erh tea? I have, thanks to WellTea. I’ve had other teas from this company and they do an outstanding job. From their website to their packaging and pricing, they make the tea experience the best it can be. They have herbal teas that are all-natural and most of them organic. They also have delicious yellow and white teas super high in antioxidants. Did I mention their matcha and green teas are one of kind? They have authentic tea accessories and veggie teas to boot. I’m not a salesman for this company, but if I were I’d go broke because I would spend my paychecks trying their galaxy of teas!

    This tea has an excellent flavor. the aroma is pleasant and the taste is flavorful. I can highly recommend this brand.

    The product arrived quickly and was exactly as described. The tea is very high quality and vacuum packed for freshness. The leaves are very intact (not powdery) and 1 tsp brews a full-bodied, deep auburn-colored cup of tea with no bitterness. I bought it for the health benefits, and am also enjoying the flavor and experience of brewing and drinking this rare tea!
