Loose Leaf Puerh Teas

Dark, elemental, and vividly alive, Puerhs are the place where time, terroir and tea meet. Complex and voluptuously changeful, Bellocq’s versatile portfolio of Puerh teas offers delights for both the novice and the aficionado. True Puerh originates in the Xishuangbanna Prefecture of Yunnan Province of China where fresh tea leaves are plucked, left uncooked (in the Sheng tradition) or pan roasted (in the Shou tradition), sun dried, tightly packed into traditional styles such as briquettes or bings, then left to ferment over time. When the elements are in place, Puerh is more akin to plant medicine, its unique properties affecting the senses with broad flavor palettes and visceral energetics.
