Centuries ago, the ancient tea cultures of Yunnan and Southeast Asia brewed fermented 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. We blend bright, citrusy ginger with zesty orange peel and hints of lemongrass to provide balance to robust, slightly earthy and full-bodied pu-erh tea. Pu-erh Ginger brews an energizing cup that warms the whole body.



Tasting Notes: Robust and invigorating with zesty ginger and hints of citrus

Ingredients: Organic pu-erh tea, organic ginger root, organic orange peel, organic lemongrass, organic lemon verbena.

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: 200°F
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.

Absolutely adorable packaging! The organic ingredients just feel so good consumer too! The ginger flavour is an absolute blast, something I love. However, there's also a strong element of lemon, which I liked less. Either way this would be ideal for someone with a bit of a head cold and snotty nose! Add a dash of honey and your sore throat will be sorted too!

My company has been using this blend since the beginning. The earthy flavor of the pu'erh compliments the ginger so well, and gives our ginger kombucha its magic. I also love the recent changes to the blend with the addition of lemongrass and a few other ingredients!

I was sad when Rishi changed their recipe for this tea -- so sad, in fact, that I ordered from another site 7 containers of what I was told was the old recipe, only to find upon receiving them that it was the new recipe! Eventually I gave in and started drinking it because I had so much of it. It's actually really good the way I make it, at least. You should boil it with some fresh ginger and serve it with milk. It'll make the best gingery milk tea you've had. It's still got this pu-erh depth to it without having those overwhelming mushroom or fish kind of flavours that some pu-erh teas can have. I still have 5 tins of it at the moment, but when I'm out, I'll probably end up getting more. Give it a go!

This is one of my favorite teas. I disagree with a previous reviewer who thinks that the ginger is overpowering. In my view the ginger and pu-erh are perfectly balanced. This tea is particularly soothing.

Very glad the ginger isn't overpowering in this tea. If you make sure not to brew too long (always a problem when I forget to time it) then this is a really pleasant puerh variety. Ginger goes unexpectedly well together with the fermented black tea. It's also fairly potent in terms of its caffeine, I found.

I LOVE this tea!!! It is a bit spicy, but I love spicy, so it's a great break from normal teas.

Ok, I decided to come back and make a second review of this tea. My first review was a bit harsh and I've had time to grow with this tea or maybe I've give this tea time to allow me to catch up to the spiciness of the ginger. Regardless, let me tell you what I've found. Ready?

This tea makes a brilliant iced tea. Yes, that's right. Lightly sweetened with ice once can appreciate the strength of the ginger combined with the Pu-ehr. It's absolutely perfect as an iced tea. I like this one so much iced that it may easily become my go to iced tea. I don't like it hot but I love it iced!

First, I must admit to being a bit of a Pu Erh snob. I know a good Pu Erh when I taste it and I can't say this is it. Perhaps my palate was ruined by the non-organic Pu Erh I had been drinking one hour before. Never underestimate the complexity of a $5.00 bag of Pu Erh from an Asian Market. Some of those are the best. With that said, this Pu Erh isn't bad. Unfortunately, the Ginger is overpowering to this tea. The Ginger should be a background flavor, but here it overpowers the richness of the actual tea. Unfortunately, as a result of this I won't be buying it again but I look forward to trying other Rishi teas.

This is the best tea I have ever had. I adore the spiciness of the ginger and the earthiness of the aged tea. I drink this almost every day.
