Our elegantly smooth Chinese puerh is the perfect match for breezy lemon verbena and tangerine: the rich, earthy notes are balanced out by the sweet citrus flavours, and leaves of lemon verbena have long been considered a good digestif.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong light and odours. Once opened, store in an airtight container.
Lesser quality puerh teas tend to be rather heavy and musty, but you'll find this blend has a wonderfully clear, sweet freshness, adding a bit of a kick to the famously full-bodied brew. After all, why choose between the carrot and the stick?

The Only Fermented Tea
Puerh's unique among tea for its processing methods: the leaves are packed into "cakes" and kept in a warm, dark room where they gradually ferment. The final tea has a distinctively earthy flavour that's considered an acquired taste. We think it's definitely one worth acquiring…
Buyers tip – Rinse the leaves before brewing as this will improve the flavour.
