Product Description

Dai Minority Bamboo Raw Pu-erh Tea is a treat for pu-erh lovers.

Raw Bamboo Pu-erh tea is extremely common and especially appreciated by the minorities in the Yunnan province. However, outside of the Yunnan Province, bamboo pu-erh tea is extremely rare and difficult to acquire. The Dai minority is the premier authority in making this traditional tea, providing the best bamboo pu-erh of all the varieties available in the Yunnan Province.

Making Dai minority bamboo Pu-erh is a very complex and time-consuming process. It can be made only in the Autumn season, as the "fragrant" bamboo only grows then. After the fragrant bamboo is freshly cut, the tea must be pressed into the bamboo within one day. Otherwise, the bamboo fragrance will dissipate to the point where the tea is just not the same. This tea requires a high degree of skill and craftmanship and is worth a try.
