Saiqing, or sun-dried green tea, made from the Yunnan Da Yeh broad leaf tea tree varietals, is the base tea for all pu-erh.

Tasting Notes: Our blend combines multiple vintages of aged and fresh teas to yield a strong, brisk, slightly sweet and smoky tea with a sturdy orange infusion that highlights notes of apricot and wild herbs.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ pu-erh tea.

Basic Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 180°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Infusion Time: 3-5 minutes

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tealeaves and the length of the infusion time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.
