Getting Funky: An Introduction to Pu-Erh

  • MEM TEA Training Center & Tasting Room (map)


Its flavors have been compared to mushrooms, leather and the barnyard: it’s pu-erh, the fermented, often aged category of tea that hails from Yunnan Province. This unique style of Chinese tea is relatively unknown in the West, and it gains both complexity and mellowness over time.

In this hour and half class, join Sebastian Beckwith and Ana Dane of In Pursuit of Tea as we taste through five distinct examples—learning how to best brew them along the way—and delve into the history and production techniques behind this intriguing tea.

BONUS: For just $15 more you can join author Sebastian Beckwith for an afternoon of exceptional teas along with excerpts from his new book, immediately following the introduction to pu-erh.
