What is puerh tea?
After Japanese matcha, Indian chai, and summer iced tea, it’s time to go back to the motherland of all tea, and talk about Chinese puerh This is also the tea that inspired the Libertea business. My father, Hua, being a tea head his whole life, found a second career making tangerine puerh, after becoming a certified tea grader in China. Libertea was born because I want to introduce his puerh into more Australian tea lovers! We will talk about the many health benefits of puerh, its history, differences between raw and cooked puerh, the aging/fermentation process, and of course to taste them Tasting menu: 1. 5 year old Loose leaf puerh 2. 18 month old tangerine puerh 3. 10 year old puerh cake Because we are breaking a 80 year old puerh cake, entry fee is slightly higher ($10) and will appreciate you canceling your rsvp 24 hours before the meetup if you can’t make it. See you at the market:)
