Sheng Pu-Erh - Loose Leaf

This is the quintessential sheng pu-erh tea. It has the incredible deep flavors of traditional pu-erh tea, and all the characteristic traits of the sheng style. Fermented/aged for over ten years, this loose-leaf sheng has sublime vegetal, grassy, and earthy notes that make it a cut above the rest. Curious about sheng tea? You can't go wrong trying this one.

  • Steep for 2 minutes, strain leaves, and enjoy!
    • Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra couple minutes!
