In China, green pu-erh tea is known as "raw" tea because the leaves are not baked when processed. As the tea ages, it becomes smoother, sweeter, and loses its bitterness, changing colour from a light yellow to a darker amber. The pu-erh class of teas has many health benefits, but perhaps most notably aids in weight loss and fat reduction. 

Country of Origin: China
Region: Yunnan
Grade: Pu-erh

Hot tea brewing method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 teaspoon of broken cake for a 3-cup teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). This tea is best enjoyed on its own although a dash of milk can help open the earthy character of this tea.

Iced tea brewing method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!

It is perfectly fine to drink as it is, and over the years, this will become a smooth traditionally aged Pu-erh that looks more red than green. Classic size of 357 grams. Buy one to drink and save the other. Makes a great gift. Luxury green Pu-erh.
