Pu-erhs offer a unique tea experience, being the only pure tea that uses microbial fermentation to process and oxidize the leaves. This loose-leaf Shou Pu-erh offers a robust, sturdy and rich steep.

Although this is a very traditional Chinese tea, it reminds us of the intersections of nature that we appreciate here at Westholme: the seaside, rolling farmer's fields and the temperate rainforest. From the very first sip you can sense kelp, sun warmed hay, and mushrooms on the forest floor. This Pu-erh offers a smooth even flavour that is grounding with a clean finish. The deep mossy and earthy tones would complement spicy foods marvellously.

Drinking this tea invites contemplation of the elements of nature which aid the process of fermentation. Let your mind wander off to the landscape in China which once inspired and still holds true to this style of tea!
