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

Ingredients: Organic pu-erh tea, organic elderberries, organic hibiscus flowers, organic red wine grape skins, 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 bought this as a teaser and I also would like to be able to buy this loose leaf in smaller quantities. Very nice flavor, a good substitute when you want a glass of wine with a meal but can't have one!

I love this tea. This is my second day drinking this tea. The first day I prepared the tea, I use raw honey as the sweetener with 16 oz hot water. I drank the tea 1 hr after my breakfast and dinner. Within 1 hr of drinking the tea each time I had a formed bowel movement. I am able to use the tea bag twice and after that it no longer is strong enough in taste. I really enjoy the taste too.

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!
