Description

This exclusive pu-erh blend originates from the remote Dai, Lahu, and Wa ethnic mountain villages in southern Yunnan Province, where heirloom broad leaf tea varietals have developed a complexity from centuries of seed propagation. Ancient Pu-erh Classic comprises multiple vintages resulting in a uniquely bold flavor profile with a body as deep as its history. This shu pu-erh is notable for its notes of earthy sweetness, hints of cocoa, and a woodsy, aromatic finish. The very best in everyday organic pu-erh.

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.

Ingredients

Organic pu-erh tea.

Origin

Yunnan

A suprisingly smooth pu'erh for the price. Not a heavy fermented taste, but rather clean and earthy. A fine product.
