Experiencing Pu-erh

The Wonders of Yunnan: Picking Tea on Nannuo Mountain

The Wonders of Yunnan: Picking Tea on Nannuo Mountain

Last month, we were fortunate enough to visit the Yunnan Province of China to witness the tea making process firsthand. In this blog series, we’re excited to share some of what we learned and experienced on our short adventure to Yunnan. Some of the best Pu-erh tea comes from the Xishuangbanna region of Yunnan Province, so that’s where we spent most of our time. On the first day of our trip, we visited the gorgeous Nannuo Mountain. Our exquisite 2012 Nannuo Raw First Spring Harvest Pu-erh Tea comes from this very mountain, so we were very excited to visit the...

Pu-erh Tea with Honey

Those who drink good raw Pu-erh regularly know that it possesses a powerful returning sweetness that typically eliminates any need for sugars or other artificial sweeteners. Since we’re interested in combining Pu-erh tea with other natural flavors, however, it seemed like a given to try mixing honey into our Pu-erh.

Many raw Pu-erh teas already have a honey-like color to them, so when adding honey, those golden hues are only enriched and intensified. After a good stir,...

Pu-erh Milk Tea

Pu-erh Milk Tea

No matter the time, place, or situation, drinking Pu-erh tea is exciting. Most of the time, we drink Pu-erh tea on its own. Since the tea stands on its own so well, why not enjoy it in its purest form? Still, the world is full of many wonderful flavors, many of which can complement and enhance the flavor of tea, and vice versa. Today we begin a series of new ways to experience Pu-erh, starting by adding milk to the tea. Milk tea (often enjoyed in the form of Boba Tea) is a drink that’s popular in Asian countries and increasingly popular...

First Pu-erh Experience: Kristy from Fullerton

First Pu-erh Experience: Kristy from Fullerton

This is the first entry in a new blog series, where we give people from all walks of life the opportunity to try our Pu-erh tea. Today, we interview Kristy, a 22-year-old filmmaker and tea enthusiast from Fullerton, California. Kristy was gracious enough to invite us into her lovely home, where we set up shop and began to start brewing the tea for her.     We decided to begin with a Raw Pu-erh: our own delicious Enchanting Beauty. While we brewed the tea and rinsed the teaware, we explained the differences between Pu-erh and other types of tea, as...
