One of the five main types of tea (white, green, oolong and black being the others), pu'erh tea stands apart with its uncommonly soft earthy flavor and woodsy tones. Unlike all other teas, pu'erh (pronounced 'poo-err') is actually aged. The tea leaves go through a natural fermentation process before the tea is gently dried. This creates a cup with zero astringency and deep, rich body. Pu'erh is extraordinarily smooth and deeply refreshing.
Our Pu'erh Poe (the shou variety of pu'erh) gives a clean, woodsy aroma, warm hay inside a barn, mushrooms and savory vegetables.
Wilted flower notes and a faint dark chocolate texture. Mellow and grounding. If the flavor is too strong for you, simply dilute with water (which, interestingly, doesn't work for many other teas.) Pu'erh is extremely versatile - you can steep it for as little as 30 second or 30 minutes, whatever pleases your palate. It won't get bitter and is great for multiple infusions.
If you are partial to Pu Erh teas, we suggest delighting your palate with the rich taste of this superior grade tea.
1 tsp per cup steep at 212 for 3-5 minutes
