Flavor Profile:Clean taste, smooth, earthy with no astringency or smokiness.
Ingredients:Compressed Pu-er Tea Leaves.
A classic, 'Wo-dui' or 'cooked' style Puer brick from a small tea garden in Xishuangbanna, Southern Yunnan. In making this tea, the fresh green leaves are roasted, sun-dried, steamed and then heavily oxidized. This style of tea changes very slowly with time. We have been aging this pu-er tea brick since 2002 in our storage and have noticed a considerable change in the flavor profile in the last couple of years.

Tibetan Style Puer
The history of pu-er tea originates from the small town of Puer in Yunnan. Teas shipped along the Silk Road to Tibet, India and beyond, gained a characteristic earthy, musky aroma and smooth, slightly smoky taste due to the humid environment and long journey. People began to appreciate the unique flavor profile. Later, a special tea processing techinque emerged to allow the leaves to continue to ferment over time and mimick the flavor of the silk road journeys.

Limited availabilty.

Dark, cooked pu-er are characterized by their rich, earthy smoothness and require higher temperature water to infuse. Their unique lack of astringency keep them from over-steeping and make them ideal for long, low-maintenance infusions.

Break approximately two teaspoons of leaf per 8 ounce cup. Rinse the leaves briefly with hot water then steep with 190 to 200 F water for 4 minutes. This should provide at least 3 to 4 infusions.
