Black pu’er is a fermented tea where the tea is packed and aged without being completely dry. The result is a earthy, bold flavor tea. This pu’er is aged in hollowed out mandarin orange, combining the earthy taste with a sweet orange flavor. Unlike other orange flavored teas that are flavored with orange essence, this tea imparts the distinct flavor of the orange rind - citrus with an undertone of bitterness. Before opening, this tea can be stored up to 3 years, and when opened 1 year. Try cold brewing and drinking iced. It also takes well to milk and sweeteners.
Brewing Suggestion: Fully experience the tea by drinking multiple infusions. Spoon out 1 teaspoon. 1st brew the tea for 30 seconds. 2nd and 3rd brew for 40 seconds. 4th brew 60 seconds. 5th brew 90 seconds. 6th brew 120 seconds.
Price is per Mandarin, averaging 1 oz or 15 cups.
