Davidson’s Pu-erh Black is sourced from Cangyuan County, in the Yunnan Province of China. Pu-erh teas are fermented after drying and rolling the tea leaves, and are named after the city in which the tea originated; Pu’er City in the Yunnan Province.

Davidson's sources Shou Pu-erh, which differentiates itself from Sheng Pu-erh by its fermentation process. Shou translates to "cooking" in Chinese, and refers to the process of expediting fermentation with added heat and moisture. In this way, Shou Pu-erh is categorized as a black tea, whereas Sheng Pu-erh is a green because of its raw, uncooked nature.

Cangyuan County is located in a mountainous region, far from any major city. The subtropical highland climate is perfect for tea growth and fermentation. The local small farmers practice sustainable farming methods, and have generations of experience in the Pu-erh practice.

Pu-erh teas are thought to aid in digestion, and maintain high levels of Vitamin C. Pu-erh's powerful boost in antioxidants makes it useful for immunity, and there is some speculation that Pu-erh may also aid in weight management.

Davidson’s Pu-erh Black maintains a rich, fragrant flavor profile with a mellow finish. Davidson’s recommends enjoying this brew hot and pure.
