Jalamteas Little Success Story Continues
With the New Year here in the present tense, we at Jalamteas wish to thank our sipping supporters who had a wonderful impact on our little venture of hand-sourcing rare Puerhs and getting them directly into your cups. We had buyers from seven countries purchase teas of our first Bada unfermented Puerh, and we’re now offering up a subscription model option here because of continued requests.

Each month an entirely new Puerh, with a story of the people who cultivate and harvest it, an interactive ‘adventure link’ showing you where the tea is from, and some little pieces of wisdom from the indigenous pickers on what the teas are good for what ailments.
