10 Year PuErh

(25 customer reviews)

Pu-erh tea is an aged, fermented, bacteria laden, musky delight.  Doesn’t sound too appetizing eh?  Well, the bacteria is actually very beneficial to the body, the taste is earthy and nutty and the caffeine is lower than typical black tea.  The older and longer the Pu-erh tea cakes have been aging (in the right conditions of course), the better the tea tastes and the higher value it commands.  Pu-erh is purported to be one of the best natural cholesterol fighters on the market. This milder classic fermented tea is great for new Pu-erh drinkers because it lacks a lot of the heavy mustiness that is characteristic of some of the longer aged and more fermented cakes.

About This Tea

Ingredients:  Aged & Fermented Black Tea
Nuances: White/Cremini mushroom, earth, and loam

Steeping Essentials

Amount of PuErh

With gongfu brewing you steep smaller but more portions, this is why Gaiwans and Yixing teapots are the most suitable tools. We recommend 5-8 grams (heaping tsp) of tea steeped 120 ml of water.

Rinsing

In a gongfu session, your tea vessel should be pre-heated, and the leaves should be ‘awakened’ through a quick ‘rinse. To do this you add the tea leaves with 120 ml of water in your steeping vessel (mug or gongfu tea pot). Then you wait for 5-30 seconds and discard the first infusion.

The rinsing time can be short for loose leaf PuErh. Note that the tea leaves don’t have to be completely unfurled. Generally, a 30 second rinse is adequate.

Steeping

After rinsing, you can infuse the tea leaves again with 120 ml of water & cover your gaiwan or teapot with a lid. When you’re using a Yixing teapot, you can optionally pour hot water over it, to further lock in the heat inside of the teapot.

Wait for 10 seconds and pour out. The steeping time for gongfu sessions is much shorter because we’re using a large amount of leaves relative to the amount of water (120 ml).

Generally, we recommend applying a 10 second steep for the first 3 infusions, followed by adding 5 more seconds for every subsequent infusion. However, feel free to adjust this depending on how you like the intensity of the previous steep.

You can reuse the PuErh tea leaves until the flavour has become too light. We recommend doing a final 2-minute brew to draw out all the flavour.

Enjoy your tea!

    Tastes better than it sounds! Delicious, healthy pu-erh.

    this Pu-Erh is great and for some reason it’s rich, mild but bold flavor seems to invoke a feeling of being nurtured…

    I purchased this tea after seeing a segment on Global BC when a representative from Denman Island teas said it helped with stomach issues. I have had issues for years that doctors have not been able to figure out. Call it a miracle or maybe this tea really is what they say it is. I have no more stomach issues and bonus “I love the taste”!!!!!!!!!!!!
