Roy Fong Talks Pu Erh

Imperial Tea Court Teamaster Roy Fong discussed pu erh tea with San Francisco Examiner columnist Deborah Parker Wong in a recent article. He talked about the heritage of this variety of camellia sinensis and characteristics of good quality pu erh.

At Imperial Tea Court we carry wide selections of loose leaf and cake pu erh, both sheng cha (green) and shou cha (finished). In addition, we have an assortment of high-quality yi xing teapots for traditional gong fu preparation that's well suited to this variety of tea.

The tea classes we took with Roy were always wonderful, but our favorite of all time was the Pu erh class. We wish there would be more classes sometime
