It was such a delight to receive these teas and I’m excited to share them with you.  Jalam teas also offer a tea subscription with a new tea and new story every month.  Make sure to check out their website there is a wealth of information about their teas. 






Interesting Highlights:

Stong tea as with all CRC teas, tiny particles of tea prepared for it’s intense flavor. 



Green unfermented Puerh


The Scent or Aroma:

Dark, Earthy, Strong Scent.



This tea and the ones to follow are strong teas, bitter and a dark brew.  I added milk and it really mellowed this tea out.  So you can enjoy it both ways.


Cost: $24.00 / 100 g cake

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.







Interesting Highlights:

Very dark tea made in the familiar CTC way



Fermented (black, cooked) puerh


The Scent or Aroma:

Strong tea with a strong connecion to the earth.



Adding milk to this tea really mellows it out and brings out a slightly different flavor and leaving it black it’s a strong and would give anyone moving from coffee an amazing choice.


Cost: Unavailable at this time/ Sold Out

Price may vary according to the amount purchased.




Company highlights, notes and more:

One of the globe’s most timeless and vital commodities, tea, has inspired words, thoughts and deeds like few other plants. We celebrate its ability to both bring people together and to enhance the solitary moments. We also find inspiration from tea’s understated and eternal role as one of the planet’s great-unpolluted fuels.


JalamTeas concentrates on Yunnan’s teas, with an emphasis on the heralded Puerhs. From years of sourcing, writing and sipping the teas from southern Yunnan, we have selected teas based on taste, production, history and geography. We select teas that are not only ‘originals’, but also teas that are rarely, if ever, available to palates beyond Asia. Teas that are classics in their own rights with their own stories.


With each tea we offer, we will delve into not only the teas themselves; we will present the adventure and tale of each tea. Our own tea journey will trace and source teas from some of planet’s original tea strongholds gifting a view and taste into the places, people and of course the tea itself.
