Description

Aged pu-erh has a character like no other tea. The dusty rust and cocoa colored leaves encase a rich aroma and pleasant body.

It also makes an Old Fashioned cocktail like no other!

Insider Tip: Pu-erh teas are what the Chinese consider true black teas. What we in the West call black, is referred to as red there - referring to the liquor color. Pu-erhs have a disctinct flavor and are much beloved - some even invest in Pu-erh, keeping the aged cakes as an asset which can be sold for a higher value once it has aged more.
 
Caffeine Level: High.

Pu-erh comes from the Yunnan Province of China. With a strong, distinct flavor that is developed in the fermentation process, pu-erh is offered in two varieties: raw and ripened (Shenq/ Shu Pu We). Often compressed into bengs (cakes) or tou chas (small bird nest shaped rosettes) or even into fruit (such as our Tangerine Pu-erh), pu-erhs are believed to aid with digestion and weight loss, to be detoxifying and to help regulate blood sugars. Do some research and dive in!

Ingredients: Organic pu-erh tea.

Pu-erh Chinese black organic

Pandemic slowdown seems to have let some teas get old, but Pu-erh likes aging and this recent buy is good. Leaves are a slightly ashen dark gray. Steeps very quickly. Rinse a few seconds then steep 10-20 seconds and see how you like it. Later infusions can be almost as brief, and you can get many infusions. Aromas and flavors are mushroomy, loamy, maybe a metallic hint, and, naturally, fermented. A very flavorful tea, if you like those flavors. No sweetness. I add just a little sugar sometimes; that's probably like putting 7-Up in your white wine, but a tiny bit elevates the flavor profile a tad. I probably need a gawain to taste Pu-erh best.
