This distinctive, gourmet blend honors the cultural parallels between Pu-erh tea and Bordeaux wine–a pair of ancient beverages richly steeped in tradition and history. Their very names derive from their geographic place of origin. Connoisseurs seek those that best express their terroir. Both of these treasured libations benefit from the richening effect of aging, ripening to develop a complex, nuanced character. Together, Pu-erh tea and red wine grape skins of various Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc create a smooth, supple sip with a refined structure and notes of dark fruits, cocoa nibs and a hint of fig.
Tasting Notes: Notes of blackberry and fig distinguish this singular blend of Pu-erh tea and red wine varietal grape skins
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ pu-erh tea, organic red wine grape skin, organic blackberries, organic raspberries, organic lavender flowers.
Additional Info: Pu-erh tea has an ancient past
originating in Yunnan, China millennia
ago. This rare, rich tasting tea is
treasured as a healthful, energizing tonic.
Its deep, smooth flavor is created
through an artisanal pile fermentation
process that transforms sun-dried green
tea into ripened, full-bodied Pu-erh tea.
Rishi Tea Blend
Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Times: 5 minutes (1st infusion), 6 minutes (2nd infusion)
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep 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.

I found this one a bit weird. The smell was nice -- my mother said it reminded her of her childhood -- and the tea was pleasant enough, but god help you if you brew it for too long!
