Description

Pu-Erh: traditionally aged oolong tea.

Pu-Erh is a unique tea from China’s Yunnan Province. It is a semi-fermented tea, like an oolong, but fermented twice then compressed and aged. Complex earthy aroma. Distinctively smooth, earthy and mushroomy on the palate with a colour in the cup as deep as molasses. Generally bought for its medicinal qualities Pu-Erh is considered excellent for the digestive system, indigestion, diarrhoea and for treating high cholesterol levels. Use freshly boiled water and brew for three minutes. The leaves may be reused for two or three infusions.

Dark in Colour, Strong in taste “Doesnt need to be brewed – just add the water and pour out straight away. Deep ruddy brown colour with fantastic earthy mushroom taste. Good for 5 to 6 pots of tea before too weak. I like it as it is, my wife only likes it if its dilute. ”
Full-bodied Unique Flavour I drink it All the Time “Never heard of Pu Erh ’til I saw it on Greys website. I like tea that looks & tastes strong & drink cup after cup usually with milk. Pu Erh got me hooked on the unique flavour. I drink it all day & still enjoy the flavour. Often blend with Assam from Greys, great for breakfast & for me, great value.”
Dark Red Brown Colour with Musty Taste “Interesting but not unpleasent musty taste – it tastes like the smell of mushrooms, smouldering logs on a fire, smoked kipper. I like it as it is. My wife likes it well diluted.”

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Pu-erh tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    Product: It is neither good nor poor. Rather coarse taste which is disappointing considering the write up.
    Service: Very cluttered website. Difficult to find way back after adding something to the cart.
    Vendor response: We do try to make navigation of our large Tea Store and other pages on our website as easy as possible. We are looking at changing the page to which you are directed after having added an item to the basket so as to make shopping easier.

    The Diamond Jubilee has received good feedback since first blended in 2012. I am sorry that you were disappointed with it.

    Vendor response: I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the quality of your teas. We take great care to source the best teas and we have received no adverse comment with regard the Vietnamese oolong and positive comment about the Snow Bud. Please let me know why in particular you did not like these and we will try to supply you with alternatives. Regardds, Richard Grey.
