Pu Erh tea can be quite disconcerting at first and lends itself to patient discovery. Aged for 1 year, this tea has a characteristic earthy taste and is bitter-free. With its low level of caffeine and tannins, Pu Erh tea is recommended for people with sensitive stomach.
To make Pu Erh Shou tea, fresh leaves are manipulated similarly to preparing black tea by withering, drying and rolling. The precious leaves are then spread for a few days in a room kept at high temperature and humidity, thus accelerating the post-fermentation process. .
