Organic Pu-erh Tea


Welcome To Our Organic Pu-erh Tea Offering!

Pu-erh teas are created by hand piling Yunnan black tea for lengthy periods, allowing a true internal fermentation of the leaf to occur. This process gives Pu-erh its unique earthy overtones. This type of tea is cultivated in the world’s best tea growing areas, from tea bushes as tall as trees. Pu-erh has long been valued for its medicinal benefits, believed to aid in digestion and the reduction of cholesterol.

Brewing Tips: Pu-erh tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a temperature just short of boiling (190-200° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves and allow to steep.

Pu-erh tea begins to infuse at about 1 ½ minutes and increases to an ideal brewing time of 5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. However, varying from black teas, Pu-erh will not turn bitter if over-steeped.
