Saiqing (Sun Dried) Puerh Tuo Cha "Bird's Nest"

A unique puerh experience., Saiqing (sun dried) Puerh  is made from the Yunnan Da Yeh (‘broad leaf’) heirloom tea varieties that are the base for all pu-erh tea. Pu-erh is a fermented, ripened form of tea, originating in Yunnan in old-growth, polyculture tea forests. There are two distinct types of pu-erh: sheng (green) and shu (dark), but both begin as saiqing sun-dried green tea. This Saiqing cake combines multiple vintages of aged and fresh.
