Crafted by artisan hands, available only in small quantities, these are teas we have come upon by chance, that we have received as precious gifts from kind tea masters or that we have made long journeys to track down. They’re all teas that we love and are special to our hearts. We feel really fortunate to be able to share them with you. We hope you will love them too.
Pu Erh tea is the crème de la crème of the tea world. Like vintage wines, they are highly prized for their complexity of flavours and the art of vintaging them. There are two types of Pu Erh teas.
The ripened Pu Erhs are earthly and more masculine; think of a gentlemen’s club with seasoned leather armchairs, cigars and log fires.
The green Pu Erhs, depending on the age, can be young and frisky but mellow enough like a lady blossoming into age.
Through our travels, we have found many teas which demonstrate the ingenuity of the tea masters. Crafted out of a need for blending flavours or convenience, these teas are a delight to drink. They are rare purely because they are quite new in the world of teas however they worthy of being part of the teanamu tea family.
