Our organic pu-erh tea is hand harvested from wild and semi-wild broad leaf antique tea trees located in the Yunnan province of China. Pu-erh is often referred to as "cooked" due to the fact that sun-dried green tea leaves are transformed from a greenish-golden color to a blackish-red tone.
Over the years pu-erh has garnered a committed following amongst tea connoisseurs who regard it as a sacred relic leftover from ancient tea cultures and traditions. The pu-erh we offer brews up a deep ochre red and has an earthy taste with notes of smoke and moss. It appeals to the senses of both the black tea lover and the green tea lover.
Aroma and Flavor A woodsy scent of soil, tree bark, and Autumnal leaves with a deeply earthy, almost smoky flavor.
Brew Instructions Add 1 teaspoon of tea to a cloth tea bag or mesh basket and place in your favorite mug. Pour 8 ounces of boiling water over the tea and steep for 3-5 minutes. Experiment with the length of steep time and quantity of tea and find your ideal cup!
