Black pu-erh undergoes a fermentation process in which the tea is processed and stored for a set period of time without being dried completely. The tea is usually either buried in the ground, stored in caves or under damp heavy tarps. Fermenting over time imparts the earthy character typical of most pu-erh teas. One of the things you’ll notice about this tea when you brew it is the absence of the heavy musty flavor characteristic of traditional pu-erh. Certainly this character is still there but it is layered beneath sweet notes of citrus, the result of being packed in the orange before fermentation. As tea ages it absorbs the flavor of the peel. The orange peel is flash dried under high heat prior pack with tea. Approximately 19 piece per LB. Free shipping with purchase over $60.
