Puer Tea

Puer tea is fermented tea. According to Chinese medicine, puer tea can be very soothing for digestion and help detox the body. There are two categories of puer, green puer and black puer. It takes decades for green puer to age to black puer, but a tea master discovered a way to speed up the process in the 1970’s. We offer a variety of both green and black puer cakes, tuo chas and loose.

Loose Leaf Puer Tea

Puer Cakes

The first cup kisses away my thirst,
and my loneliness is quelled by the second.
The third gives insight worthy of ancient scrolls,
and the fourth exiles my troubles.
My body becomes lighter with the fifth,
and the sixth sends word from immortals.
But the seventh —oh the seventh cup— if I drink you,
a wind will hurry my wings toward the sacred island.
