Why We Love It: This raw pu’er was hand-rolled, wood fired, and uses raw materials from a single varietal. A combination that creates a truly natural and special tea. In tea, we often talk about the ‘qi’ of a tea, or its ‘energy’. This raw pu’er gives us a sense of elation, focus, and bodily tingle that all culminate to a strong qi.
