Pu-erh

Widely consumed, a tea that has traveled with merchants and nomads for centuries, Pu-erhs are some of the oldest, most complex teas yet are largely unknown in the western world. As Pu-erhs age, they develop an earthy aroma and a sweet, full-bodied taste. They come in many, many shapes and forms - green and dark, loose leaf, compressed by hand and machine into nuggets, bricks and cakes of all sizes; aged in bamboo and baskets, fired and aged in citrus rinds and innumerable other materials, all to create unusual tea.
