Shou Puer Cha
We offer this loose-leaf variety from the province of Yunnan as an unusual delicacy. Long, dark-brown leaves with a dim luster gather in the teapot to produce a garnet colored brew that can turn as black as coffee with prolonged steeping. With a rich aroma of old temples, its distinctive taste is chthonic and deep, like holy soil. After the first unusual taste, many drinkers become addicted by its nostalgic flavor.
