A Hong Kong favourite, this aged Classic Ripe Puerh has a silky smooth consistency with a grounding, earthy flavour. We source this quality tea in small batches from a family who’ve been growing tea for three generations in Jinggu, Yunnan. As a fermented tea, Classic Ripe Puerh is full of healthy microbes, making it the perfect digestive aid after a heavy meal.
Ripe Puerh is fermented in a process called wet-piling (渥堆), where the tea leaves are left in humid conditions for microbes to do their work. The finished product is full of healthy probiotics that help digestion—which is why it is often paired with dim sum. It is also shown to help improve blood sugar control and lower cholesterol levels.
Because the tannins are broken down in the fermentation process, Ripe Puerh has no bitterness or astringency. It’s a delightfully mellow and relaxing tea that can be drunk in the evenings. You can also keep it for many years, as it ages well.
It’s rare to find quality Ripe Puerh (熟普洱 Shou Puerh) these days, as the majority is made from leftover, lower quality Raw Puerh (生普洱 Sheng Puerh), so we’re very pleased to have found this family-run farm in Yunnan, dedicated to perfecting Ripe Puerh in its own right.
