2018 Pu'er Shu Pu, Wild Forest loose leaves
Our Wild Forest Shupu was loved by many and it is currently out of stock. While waiting for a restock, try our 2016 Shupu, carefully cherished in precious handmade ceramic jars , or our selected 2018 Jingmai Shupu.
Pu'er Shupu is like a springtime sun to your body: it warms up even the coldest day, and brings you a mellow, round, intense flavor, with a gentle and soft aftertaste, and a full-bodied and natural aroma. It smells of steamed rice and the leaves, after being infused, are shiny and soft.
We prepare our pu’er shupu few kilometers away from the place where shupu was originally created, by the best Menghai artisans.
We may say that Pu'er Shupu is a Pu'er Shengpu that aged very quickly, and thus it reaches a high degree of fermentation with all the attached benefits.
In only two months of further processing, called "post-fermentation", thanks to the care of a Shupu master and the natural intervention of the Menghai area natural yeasts, this wild forest treasure reaches its typical ripeness.
Also available in pressed mini-cakes.
