Centuries ago, the ancient tea cultures of
Yunnan and Southeast Asia brewed Pu-erh tea
together with spices and citrus to create
nourishing, stimulating tonics. Today, our
Pu-erh Ginger pays tribute to this traditional
tea recipe blended by Rishi Tea artisans in
micro-batches for the most enriching flavor. We
source organic ginger with a bright, citrusy
flavor that harmonizes with the zesty notes of
orange peel and the robust, full body of Pu-erh
tea for a truly energizing Pu-erh tea blend.
Tasting Notes: Robust and invigorating with zesty ginger and hints of citrus
Ingredients: Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ pu-erh tea, organic ginger root, organic orange peel.
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
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.

This is a great tea if you like ginger that's not overpowering. I regularly add extra ginger to my brew. Perfect for knocking down a cold, and delicious with lemon added. I also use it in my chai and it's soooo good. Some people like more ginger, but I think it's perfect to still taste the smooth puehr.
