Taste a curated selection of samples from Guangdong Aged Raw Pu'erh Tea Cakes and develop an appreciation for how different storage conditions affect the distinct aroma, flavor and mouthfeel of these amazing teas.
Wet stored Pu-erh teas have a unique taste and aroma. This is due to their storage condition in a hot and humid climate like Guangdong. The wetter storage conditions produce a more aged taste and a darker tea soup. Some people prefer this type of storage and many consider it be "Traditional Storage" for Pu-erh. We avoid offering any teas with noticeable white molding or other mold or spores visually present, or those with a moldy taste. To be sure our offering is considered "dry wet storage".
Pu-erh tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf varietal of Camellia Sinensis. It is typically processed into compressed cakes, bricks and tuos. Pu-erh is particularly special because it can be aged for decades or longer, always changing and (in most cases) developing more depth and texture. Raw Pu-erh (生茶) is the traditional form of Pu-erh, and is sun-dried and compressed.
