    Tiandiren Workshop dos a huge variety of blended sheng and shu pu’er, drawing on their experience with pressing and aging for the last several decades to hone in on their unique flavor profile. This twelve year old shu pu’er offering from Tiandiren is extremely clean, without even a hint of sourness. It almost sparkles on the palate. Notes of sweet wet wood, brown sugar, and dried fruit come together for a deeply comforting shu pu’er. The big leaf pressing yields a uniquely sweet tea perfect for all-day brewing.


  • 'People make and lose fortunes investing in pu’er, and betting on this unique tea’s slow fermentation process. Most pu’er does in fact become more complex over time. Astringency mellows out, darker and richer flavors come through. Textural complexities become more pronounced'
