This Pu-erh tea originates in remote mountain villages where China's Yunnan Province meets Southeast Asia. Here, the beyond-organic environment nurtures heirloom tea cultivars as it has for generations: without human or industrial inputs. Sun-dried green tea known as saiqing maocha is produced in this ancient tea appellation, and sought after for its strong energy and geographically unique flavor. Artisans transform saiqing maocha into Pu-erh using a traditional leaf piling fermentation process that creates the ripened and deeply rich profile of Pu-erh tea over the course of 85-120 days.

Tasting Notes: Rich, full-bodied and smooth with a deep earthy sweetness and notes of cocoa

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

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.

Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 212°F (boiling)
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 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.
