The history of this tea type dates back to the Shang Dynasty (1600- 1050 BC), when the Pu people from China’s Yunnan region began cultivating tea.

The result yields a thick body and deep flavor that many tea lovers enjoy. With its full flavor, Aged Pu-erh is an ideal tea for those who are making the switch from coffee to tea.

Decided to try Pu-erh November 10, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lisle , IL United States  
This is my first experience with Capital Teas, I purchased this tea for my girlfriend, she is very please with this tea.
I myself only drink tea occasionally and usually will not drink black tea,  i think because of the astringency,  but I like this black tea , it is aged/fermented, it is very smooth.  This aged tea has a  bit higher price but well worth it.  This is the only black tea that I will drink.  Capital Teas was very quick to fill the order I placed.  I am very satisfied with my experience with Capital Teas.

Outstanding December 18, 2015
Reviewer: Lisa Claflin from Mesa, AZ United States  
This was my first pu-erh and it I was amazed at the fermented flavor. I've had two pu-erhs and my observation is that they have sparkle the first hour or two and then they flatten out into a more earthy flavor and by the next day it is flat, many of the original layers of top notes gone completely. I tried milk in it and I thought that really elevated it into a gorgeous flavor, quite good even the next day.

Finally September 29, 2012
Reviewer: Dr. L from Glenwood, MD United States  
I have been looking for this tea for 3 years. The first pu-erh I tried was aged 28 years and was a pleasant surprise. Although this pu-erh is only aged 5 years, it is every bit as enjoyable. I feel more awake with this tea than drinking a strong cup of coffee...without the jitters. My wife loves the tin.
