Known for rich, earthy fragrance and flavor with notes of plums. Dates, and chocolate, Pu-erh can be stored many years – even decades – in cool, dry cellars to improve flavor. Fermented twice, pu-erh is often said to have “vintages” like fine wine. Some vintages of pu-erh are very rare and very expensive.
