On the go? Check out our Pu-erh Bordeaux Tea Bags.

This artistic blend honors the cultural parallels between Pu-erh tea and Bordeaux wine–a pair of ancient libations steeped in tradition. Their very names derive from their geographic place of origin: Pu-erh county in Yunnan Province, China and Bordeaux city in southwestern France. Whether tea or wine, connoisseurs seek gems that best express the nuances of terroir and vintage. Both Pu-erh and Bordeaux benefit from the richening effect of aging, increasing in complexity as time passes on. Together, Pu-erh tea and red wine grape skins of various Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc create a smooth, supple cup with a refined structure and notes of cassis and lavender.


Tasting Notes

Notes of blackberry and fig distinguish this singular blend of Pu-erh tea and red wine varietal grape skins

Everyday Brewing

Water to Leaf Ratio
1 tbsp (4g) per 8 oz of water
Water Temperature
195°F
Steep Time
5 minutes

Traditional Brewing

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.

Ingredients

Organic pu-erh tea, organic elderberries, organic hibiscus flowers, organic red wine grape skins, organic blackberries, organic raspberries, organic lavender flowers.
