What is it?
Young Pu’erh

This tea is classed as a young Pu-erh as it’s only one year old, however it has the wonderful earthy, musty flavour associated with many older Pu-erh black teas. Like wines, young Pu-erh's are considered less valuable than older teas (some five years or older), as indeed the taste of Pu-erh becomes more mellow with age.
Broken up from tea cakes which contain tea leaves that have been picked, rolled, withered in the hot sun and then steamed and pressed. It is the steaming process that generates the moisture that is responsible for the musty and earthy characteristics of the Pu-erh tea.
