Gong Ting translates to ‘Imperial Court’. Imperial Court Pu Erh tea is the highest grade of loose leaf Pu Erh. Pu Erh is traditionally compressed into different shapes like cakes, bricks or little and medium size bowls called Tuocha. Only a limited amount is produced as loose leaf. Gong Ting Pu Erh is made from young/ tender leaves and golden buds. The liquor (infusion) is deep red with an aroma reminiscent of Chinese dates and nuts with a sweet creamy finish.
