The Elegance of Time




In a rapidly changing world, timelessness has become a rare virtue and a seemingly impossible feat. In a world full of shortcuts and compromise, Denong Tea seeks out the timeless. Born on the mountains of Yunnan, ancient Pu-erh tea trees carry countless centuries worth of secrets and history. These ancient trees make up less than three percent of the tea trees in Yunnan Province, which is the only region in which these trees can thrive. The oldest of these trees is over 2,700 years old. It is our firm belief that the tea leaves from these trees make the best Pu-erh in the world. It is timeless.

It’s this discovery of the timeless that gives us our purpose and our inspiration. We consider ourselves guardians of the world’s best Pu-erh, as gatekeepers to an ancient time and place. Every year, we journey hundreds of miles to the famous Pu-erh mountains to discover and rediscover the finest tea leaves in existence. When this tea is pressed into cakes or bricks, its story truly begins. Like a fine wine, good Pu-erh tea boasts an evolving composition and a flavor profile that’s always growing in quality and complexity. Whether you choose to enjoy our tea now or hold onto it and watch its value soar, we hope you’ll join Denong Tea in our quest for timelessness.
