Pu-erh Tea Sample Collection
Explore Pu-erh teas! Three of China's finest - ripe, raw and pressed, the full range of Pu-erh tea tastes.
- Small Leaf Pu-erh ( Xi Ye Pu-erh) Ripe pu-erh with an earthy aroma and sweet note. 2 oz.
- Yi Wu Purple Mao Cha A wild puerh with long leaves tinged with a purple color yield a highly aromatic Pu-erh that offers a surprisingly sweet, natural grassy note at the front end and a lingering, sweet-flavor finish. 2 oz
- 2011 Mengku Grade 3 Tuo Cha This ripe mini Tuo Cha is made entirely with Grade 3 leaf from Lincang. Semi-tippy grade leaves (note the large size of the leaf once it is steeped) offer a brew that is luscious, creamy and sweet with some camphor flavor. The leaves were fermented for 47 days and then graded. The result is a consistent leaf size and a taste that is deep and very smooth. Each 4 gram nugget will provide multiple steeps. Made in 2011. 2 oz.

Supporting adults with disabilities
Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.
Selected by the finest shops and restaurants
Our award-winning teas are proudly served at these and other fine restaurants, stores and tea shops.
