Iron Silk Puerh

  • Spoon 1-2 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 190°F
  • Timer 2 Min

Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 190°F in a kettle. Add 1-2 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 2 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 2 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 1-2 tsp 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 1-2 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

A very strong puerh is blended with peppermint, clove, and licorice root to create a brew that is strong yet incredibly smooth. The additional ingredients add a tingly spicy note to the cup.

Extra Info:

Ripened or cooked puerh is specially processed to imitate aged raw pu'er. The process does not actually employ cooking, the term may come about due to inaccurate translation due to the dual meaning of "shœ" as both "fully cooked" and "fully ripened".

The process used to convert raw puerh leaves into ripened puerh is a recent invention that manipulates conditions to approximate the result of the aging process by prolonged bacterial and fungal fermentation in a warm humid environment under controlled conditions, a technique called "wet piling" in English. This involves piling, dampening, and turning the tea leaves in a manner much akin to composting.

Iron Silk Puerh is probably one of my most favorite teas. I love it hot and as iced tea. The flavor is very distinct but not strong and it mixes well with other flavors. I like to mix it with citrus or fr

Easily one of my favorite teas. It tastes like how rain smells, but fresher.

Incredible, tried it on a whim and was blown away. I'm not a huge Puerh fan but I do like some, this one shot straight to the top of my favorites. The mint adds such a nice texture to it, I really enjoy this tea! I'm a big fan of Lapsang Souchong and other smokey teas and fruity green and white teas if that gives you an idea. This is like a bit of both, its great!
