Pu-erh tea has an ancient past originating in Yunnan, China millennia ago. This rare, rich tasting tea is treasured as a healthful, energizing tonic. Its deep, smooth flavor is created through an artisanal pile fermentation process that transforms sun-dried green tea into ripened, full-bodied Pu-erh tea.
This distinctive, gourmet blend honors the cultural parallels between Pu-erh and Bordeaux wine-a pair of ancient beverages richly steeped in tradition and history. Their very names derive from their geographic place of origin. Connoisseurs seek those that best express their terroir. Both of these treasured libations benefit from the richening effect of aging, ripening to develop a complex, nuanced character. Together, Pu-erh tea and red wine grape skins of various Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc create a smooth, supple sip with a refined structure and notes of dark fruits, cocoa nibs and a hint of fig.
