Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 190°F in a kettle. Add 1 piece of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 1 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 1 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 piece of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 piece of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

This “Dark” tea from Hunan province of China, is medium to full bodies, very smooth, with a delicious dusty rose flavor and aroma. Contains dark tea and rose petals. Comes in approximately 5 gram pressed tea pieces. Use one in a mug and steep a short time (one minute), or use one in a larger pot (12-20 oz.) and steep a longer time (2-3 min.)

Extra Info:

When the leaves are picked, they are fried, kneaded and twisted, but instead of being dried as Green Tea is, the leaves are sprinkled with water and placed in huge piles under cloth to ferment before being dried. The resulting leaves have a dark black color, giving this category of tea its name. The fermentation process is extremely exacting and a closely guarded secret. Only a Tea Master after decades of study is considered good enough to produce this tea.

Not a Pu-erh

  2 likes 5 Stars

This tea, is not actually a Pu-erh, it belongs to a branch of Dark Teas, or Fermented Teas, its name is Hei Cha, so it has not the same sensorial profile than a pu-erh

Incredibly bitter

  1 likes 2 Stars

The first steeping was fairly light and of medium quality. Not rich, dark, or earthy like most Pu Erh's are; the floral rose flavors were stronger than the Pu Erh. Second brewing was darker and so intensely bitter that I could not finish it. The rose flavor increased the bitterness and made it more unpleasant.
