Sweet Home contains Fermented Puer Tea to make you feel at home wherever you are
Our Tea Bonbon Sweet Home contains a tea type that reminds many people of homeliness and joy of a long legacy...
Puer tea, with a labeling law defining it as produced in Yunnan province, is a highly recognizable 'Black' or 'Red' Chinese tea. It is undoubtedly the tea most famous in China for its ability to improve with age. Another unusual detail is the precise species that it comes from – while the majority is from the Camellia Sinensis variety, the Camellia Taliensis is also drawn on for Puer.
Just as some rice wines can be kept for a long time, improving in flavor and value, Puer tea can be set aside (just as a European might keep certain wines for a long time) and enjoyed later.
For this reason, just like good quality rice wines, Puer can be given as a gift to newlyweds or people who are in the business of getting a new home. The tea will settle in with them and improve with time, just like the marriage (one hopes). This is the so-called 'raw' Puer (Sheng in Chinese).
Other Puers are deliberately fermented during production (Shou, or Ripened Puer) by spraying them with water and storing them in humid conditions. The process is meant to create a result that tastes like the naturally aged and fermented types. These are ready to drink right away.
While Puer is known for its woody, heavy flavors that not everyone takes to right away, Sweet Home combines Rose and Stevia to balance the acidity with fragrance and a slight sweetness.
