Hello, we are Misty Peak from California. We offer a curated selection of the world’s best teas. Direct sourcing from the tea farmers helps us to ensure complete quality control. Through fair trade, we actively help to improve the lives of those who pick and process our teas.
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.
