Description

Robust but elegant earthy notes with a smooth and mellow, sweet finish.

Legend has it that pu-erh black tea was made famous given as a dowry by Chinese Princess Wencheng in 641AD. Subsequently, Emperor Daoguang granted pu-erh as the ‘Divine Tribute to the Kingdom of Heaven’ and was considered a tribute tea in 1839AD. After drying, the tea undergoes and additional fermentation process, which activates enzymes and provides and elegant earthy flavor. Ours is a rich loose-leaf pu-erh carefully blended with a high-grade Yunnan black tea. Well- balanced, smooth and mellow, the cup finishes with a noble floral note.

How to prepare:
Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 195-205 degrees (90-96 degrees Celsius) and steep for 2-3 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
