Angel's Comment:

This tea has both the rich aroma of coffee and the mellow, thickness of Pu-erh, I'd highly recommend this blend tea.

Still thinking about the question like "coffee or tea"? TeaVivre’s Coffee Pu-erh tea might be a good answer. This tea is made of the well-selected special-grade loose pu-erh tea and Arabica coffee beans. As we all know, tea and coffee are all good at odors absorbing. So mix them to fully absorb each other’s aroma, and finally form a wonderful taste: smooth, soft, the liquid has not only the aged and earthy taste of pu-erh but also the mellow taste of coffee, and a little caramel sweet. If you are a tea lover who also likes coffee, this tea must not be missed.

Tea Bush

Native to Menghai County in Xishuangbanna, the Menghai large-leaf tea species was rated as the most improved national variety in 1984. It grows up to 7m tall in the wild with bold green leaves noticeably larger than more common varieties, and the buds of this species are yellowish-green and coated in fuzz. The leaves are high in phytochemicals, with one bud and two leaves containing 2.3% amino acids, 32.8% polyphenolic compounds, 4.1% caffeine, and 18.2% catechinic acid. Because of this, pu-erh tea made from this species is high in quality, rich yet soft in taste, and maintains a full-bodied essence.

Menghai large leaf tea tree species

Arabica coffee – It is the most traditional coffee variety. It has a history of more than 100 years of cultivation and accounts for about three-quarters of the world's total coffee output. The wild plants grow between 9 and 12m tall, and have an open branching system; the leaves are opposite, simple elliptic-ovate to oblong, glossy dark green. The flowers are white and grow in axillary clusters. The seeds are contained in a drupe (commonly called a "cherry"), maturing bright red to purple and typically contains two seeds, often called coffee beans.

History

Pu-erh is one of the oldest types of tea in China with a history stretching back over 1700 years to the Eastern Han Dynasty, when the tea was called Jing Cha. It is named after the town of Pu’er in Yunnan province, which was originally the early trading center for this tea. In early history pu-erh was used as a bartering currency in southwest China, with the famed Cha Ma Gu Dao, the Tea Horse Road, being built for the purpose of transporting this tea through the Himalayas to other countries and areas in Tibet.

Baoshan, as one of the three major producing areas of Arabica coffee in Yunnan, is a pioneer in the cultivation and processing of Arabica coffee in China. It has a long history and rich cultivation experience of the cultivation of Arabica coffee, which can be traced back to the mid-1950s. According to research, the oldest coffee tree is more than 60 years old, while baoshan has been growing coffee on a large scale since 1952, with a history of nearly 60 years. Due to the unique natural conditions in the Nujiang River Basin and the Kuhe River Basin and the cultivation techniques accumulated over the years, under the careful cultivation of the vast number of farmers and technicians, Baoshan Coffee enjoys a high reputation in the international market for its unique and excellent quality.
