Puer for Preservation is a rich, smooth, and earthy Shu Puer tea that brings center and balance.
On the southwest border area of Yunnan sits the World Heritage Site Jingmai Mountain, home to a mix of the Dai, Blang, Hani, and Wa communities. This puer, from Bulang elder Mr. NanKang's community, is grown naturally following the rules of his ancestors.
He explains, "The Puer tea market is in chaos — individual sellers are pushing the price of puer ever higher, people bringing in tea and mixing it with our ancient leaves, piling it and saying it is puer. I cannot manage the market. I only know that our life is shorter than the life of a tea tree so to protect it is a huge responsibility. Our duty is to operate with respect, integrity & honesty".
