Shou (Cooked) Pu-erh

Pu-erh is an aged Chinese tea. In this section, you'll find a lovely selection of "cooked" pu-erhs made from green pu-erh leaves that have been artificially oxidized to approximate the flavor of the natural aging process. This is done through a controlled process where both the moisture and the temperature of the tea are carefully monitored. Pu-erh can be aged for many years to improve its flavor, up to 15 years for shou pu-erh, although aficionados disagree about when the optimal time is to stop the aging process. 

In China and amongst some westerners, shou pu-erh is traditionally brewed just after boiling in 3-12 short steepings of 15- 60 seconds in a yixing pot.
