Pu’er tea was first cultivated in the mountains of southern China by monks seeking spiritual enlightenment and heightened awareness. Through generations of oral direction and multi-generational tea farmers, Misty Peak’ Pu’er Tea remains completely unchanged from the days when the Ancient Tea Horse Road carried it across Asia. Pu’er tea is more than just a tea; it is a culture, a medicine, and a historical piece.
Our organic tea is direct-sourced from one family and one farm. The family prepares tea in traditional manner by hand-picking, hand-processing, hand-firing and hand-rolling their tea; they are true masters of each step. While others in the region send their leaves offsite for processing, this family uses generations of knowledge to carefully guide the tea to its full potential. This hand-crafted artisanal Pu’er has never seen machines or chemicals, allowing for a great product today or decades to come. We offer this tea in the worldwide marketplace to provide the family a more fair value for their harvests than they would otherwise achieve relying on their local market.
Pu’er has been lifted up as the tea that carries the most health benefits amongst other teas, used in China for nearly 100 different ailments, from stress to epilepsy to high cholesterol to cancer to weight issues; yet only true if the tea is of fine quality. Most Pu’ers on the market are actually hazardous to ones health and produced in factory-style farms with hazardous toxins, effectively depleting its beneficial character. With tea, quality is key, and Misty Peak offers a tea of the highest standards.
Spring Mountain (2015) – 200g
This tea was picked in the Spring of 2015 from trees planted in the 1800’s. Being that it is hand-picked from old trees, instead of bushes like most teas, the flavors are very bold and sweet and smoother than one can imagine. One will notice floral notes that leave the mouth feeling very wet and the body uplifted, just like Spring. Spring harvest is the prized harvest of the year for its aging capabilities and sweet flavor notes. Custom wood storage/aging box included.
Autumn (2015) – 200 gram
The mountain was showered with heavy rains just before harvest time, giving us a very different tea this year. A bit sweeter than normal with notes of plum and apricot, this tea is going to age very well as it already has bold flavors that will continue to evolve. A fantastic tea for today, or many years to come, our Autumn 2015 will make you feel very grounded and is sure to be a new favorite for those who love a very high quality tea with a great energy.
