Makes a Delicious Kombucha
Randy – VA – May 04, 2020

I phoned in to ask for suggestions for an oolong and a black tea for making kombucha. Pu-erh was recommended in place of the black tea, based on good feedback from other kombucha makers. I can attest that it is great for the purpose.

I bought this for a friend who enjoys Pu-erh tea. I tried it before giving it to her and really enjoyed it. It's gentle tasting while still having an earthy and smokey flavor to it. Perfectly tasty for an every day cup of tea! I got it on time and even with a free sample :)

Good loose leaf
Mark – CA – October 26, 2019

Of the loose leaf pu-erhs I've tried, this is one of the better ones by far. Some of the character I get from a traditional 20+ year aged cake is missing, but that is expected from a loose leaf style. I'm able to get good flavor for 2-3 cups without added bitterness. Smooth like most pu-erh teas.

Great intro pu-erh; great price
Bri – MA – December 11, 2018

I purchased this when Upton was sold out of my normal tuo cha pressed-style pu-erh. I find this one less “earthy,” but still satisfyingly rich. Plus, all of my kids like this and so do several friends who had never had pu-erh before. Buying more to continue sharing the tea love.

Great for Kombucha
Lisa – VA – December 08, 2018

I have made kombucha with Pu-erh teas for many years due to its earthy flavor. This is probably my favorite, now that I have found it. It has the classic Pu-erh earthiness, but it produces a bright, auburn, almost crystal-like kombucha -- and, when cold, it is very reminiscent of root beer!
