Pu-erh Black (Loose Leaf) is tea that has been fermented after drying and rolling the tea leaves.


Davidson’s Pu-erh Black (Loose Leaf) maintains a rich, fragrant flavor profile with a mellow finish.


       Davidson’s Pu-erh Black is sourced from Cangyuan County in the Yunnan Province of China. 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. During a recent visit to the tea farms, Davidson's co-owner, Kunall Patel, had the opportunity to meet a number of these small farmers, often stopping to take snapshots for memories.


Pu-erh teas are named after the city in which they originated: Pu'er City in the Yunnan Province of China. Davidson's Pu-erh Black is actually 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. This is why we call it "Pu-erh Black."

Love the tea has a great taste. I use the loose at home. For camping bags are easier to use. I like the way the company explained the 2 different types. I like this one. I do not like green tea.
