These old-growth rare pu-erh trees are communally owned by the local villagers who pick them for their livelihood. This ensures that the people continue to thrive for generations to come.
Numi's Aged Pu∙erh Tea Brick is a compressed bar of loose Pu∙erh tea leaves. Unlike traditional teas that are oxidized for 8 hours, Pu∙erh undergoes a unique 60-day fermentation process resulting in a bold, earthy flavor with hints of malt and elevated levels of antioxidants. Pu∙erh is compressed into bricks and aged, like fine wine, for months, years or even decades. This increases its value, health benefits and premium taste.
