The perfect daily companion. Soft texture and earthy aromatics with just enough barnyard to make it feel like home. Wallet-friendly and representative of the standard.

All ripe puer comes from the Xishuangbanna region of southern Yunnan Province, China. It starts out as raw puer, but then goes through a final step of “pile fermentation” where they pile it up, apply moisture, and cover it for a period of time to achieve microbiological change. The result is intensely earthy and smooth.
