Description

This compressed Green Pu-erh is made with top-quality sun-dried buds from the 1300-year-old tea trees of the Jing Mai Mangjing region of China’s southwest Yunnan province. Its flavor is mildly sweet with a character of gentle white and green teas. The infusion of this exquisite tea is light brown with a rose hue, yielding the flavor and aroma of malted grains and sweet apples. The faintest hint of earthiness that is characteristic of pu-erh teas can also be detected. Each tuo cha is individually wrapped and perfect for a small teapot or can be broken apart to accommodate a single serving.

Sustainability is a cornerstone of Arbor Teas’ business philosophy. In addition to offering an exclusively organic selection of teas, they recently became the first tea company to offer their whole catalog in 100% backyard compostable packaging. They’ve also carbon-offset the entire supply chain of their products, from origin to the customer, making Arbor Teas the greenest option for Earth-conscious tea drinkers, and one of few tea companies recognized by Green America.
