Pu'erh Tea


Rich, dark amber in the brew. This loose leaf pu-erh has been carefully aged to develop a complex earthy, malty flavour. Besides its unique flavour, Pu-Erh is believed to have many medicinal qualities which include aiding in digestion, weight control and lowering cholesterol. Regardless of whether that is true or not, it can certainly be said that it has properties many other teas do not.

Taste Notes : Earthy

Brewing :   One teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, uniquely pu-erh tea remains drinkable and enjoyable no matter how long it is steeped so it really is a matter of taste. Enjoy with or without milk

Origin : China
Ingredients : China tea

Details : Most importantly, if you are new to this tea, is to try it first by washing the leaves first. No, not in the sink! Just add your leaves to a cup or pot, add a little boiling water to wet and rinse the leaves, swill around a moment and pour the water off. Now your leaves are ready to make a good brew. Add freshly boiling water and steep, drink and enjoy and top up for multiple infusions.

Unusual and very different

It is everything the description says it is in terms of taste. With regards to any potential medicinal qualities time will tell! I take 1 cup mid morning and 1 mid afternoon and enjoy it's "pick me up" effect.

I first learned about Pu’reh in a Chinese Tea House when I lived in San Francisco and was excited to see it on Tugboat’s website! A great morning pick-me-up with tons of medicinal benefits. Love this tea.
