Certified Organic "Te Ji Grade" Loose Leaf Ripe Pu-erh Tea
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Brand Pu-erh
We are proud to offer a Certified Organic "Te Ji" Ripe Pu-erh Tea from Yunnan. This tea was grown in the area of Simao and was harvested in April 2018, and wet piled in Autumn 2018. Te Ji grade ripe pu-erh tea is the second smallest leaf grade (after Gong Ting Grade), has a very potent cha qi, with a thick tea soup, dark chocolate like bitterness , fruity sweetness, and a natural rose taste.
The tea was harvested from organically cultivated tea pure assamica varietal tea bushes growing at an altitude 1300-1350 meters (4300-4450 feet) on summit of Ma Wei Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City). The tea is picked and processed into sun-dried mao cha, and then wet piled (wu dui) for 45 days, transforming it into ripe pu-erh tea (熟普洱).
Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).
