A light puerh that has a fragrance and taste of roasted hazelnuts. A little smokey. Amber liquor. Very drinkable but without the depth of typical puerh. Since Wegmans gets some of its teas from ItoEn it’s possible that this is actually the tea listed here; although mine does not say green, it is definitely not your usual dark puerh:
Sweet Green Pu-erh
Origin: Xishuangbanna, Yunnan Province, China
This the individually wrapped green Pu-erh tuocha is one of the most unique teas we’ve offered to date. Made in the centuries-old “raw” method, the tea leaves underwent only a light processing before three years of aging. Just use one piece for a medium-sized teapot to enjoy a sweet infusion reminiscent of the fragrance of freshly steamed rice. An excellent drink for health according to traditional Chinese medicine.
per ounce: 5-7
Water: 212 F / 14 oz
Steeping: 1-2 minutes

According to the Wegmans’ package I purchased this is a black tea with sweet rice. It should be brewed for 4-6 minutes with a small piece in 20 oz. of water at between 200-212 degrees F.
