This tea comes in cubes and brews up to a medium dark color (reminds me of a darker Indian tea in color) but turns pitch black the longer it sits. It starts off with an earthy flavor but finishes like caramel. I have come to like this Hunan version of Pu-ehr much more than even expensive puehr tea cakes, and it is priced far more reasonably than puehr.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
