Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 190°F in a kettle. Add 1 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 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 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

A classic aged, tippy loose leaf green puerh tea with lots of body, earthiness, and a hint of crispness. It invokes a clean and refreshing feeling.

Extra Info:

After picking appropriate tender leaves, the first step in making raw pu'er is converting the leaf to maocha ("light green rough tea" ). The leaves are then dry pan-fried using a large wok in a process, which stops enzyme activity in the leaf and prevents further oxidation. The leaves can then be rolled, rubbed, and shaped through several steps into strands. The shaped leaves are then ideally dried in the sun and then manually picked through to remove bad leaves. Once dry, maocha can be sent directly to the factory to be pressed into raw pu'er, or like this one aged uncompressed and sold at its maturity as aged loose-leaf raw pu'er.

Earthy, hearty, brothy. A very warm and inviting tea. It will whisk you away to an overcast, rainy, October day walking through the forest. Very reminiscent of falling leaves and rain. Wet leaf, dry leaf, and flavor all are very similar to one another. A beautiful tea for transporting one elsewhere. Great for any time of year, especially in the evenings.
