White Lion Chocolate Truffle Tea
Tasting Notes: Full-Bodied, Dark Chocolate, Smooth
A full-bodied pu'erh tea balanced with real dark chocolate bits make this fine black tea delightfully sinful.
Strictly produced in Yunnan, China and the immediate surrounding area, the processing techniques of Pu’erh tea were guarded for centuries. While the traditional methods are now known at a basic level, some secrets of its production remain guarded. The original technique calls for the tea to go through a gradual, natural aging process. As the demand for this tea increased however, tea producers looked for ways to speed up the “aging” process of the original sheng cha, or uncooked, pu’erh tea. Eventually a process was created whereby the pu’erh leaves undergo an additional oxidation step allowing for immediate consumption. The result, shou cha, or “cooked” tea, has a mellow taste close to, but not the same as, a naturally aged, well cared for sheng pu’erh.
