The smooth taste of Pu-erh is very popular among tea lovers across the globe. Its unique aroma and exhilarating taste make for the perfect drink for when you want to sit back and relax. Makes a great gift. Luxury green 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.
