Aged Tea

Tea leaves from the Yunnan Dayeh variety of tea tree are picked, rolled, withered in the hot sun, after which they are steamed. The steaming process generates some moisture and when compressed (without drying) into the cakes, the tea takes on a musty and earthy character over the course of time. Pu-erh that gets somewhat moldy before it naturally dries is considered the best. Pu-erh is then stored in the dark for years. As with wine, the quality of the Pu-erh is considered to improve with age. The taste of Pu-erh becomes more mellow with age. This tea is known for it's medicinal properties. Pu-erh is often taken for relief of indigestion and dysentery but has also been reported very useful in the reduction of cholesterol.

    Pu-erh, manufactured from máochá, a type of mostly unoxidized green tea grown in China’s Yunnan province, offers numerous health benefits and a round flavour with highlights of toasted bread and elemental, earthly notes, that gets better with age. Unlike traditional teas in which 2 young leaves and a bud are plucked from the bush, 3-4 leaves and a bud are plucked, yielding older, broader leaves more suitable to the fermentation process. Once fermented, the best Pu-erh is aged like fine wine in the cellar. The result is a character that sets the tea apart from all its younger competitors. According to practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine, aged Pu-erh has the ability to induce weigh-loss, fight cancer, protect the kidneys. The antioxidant level is medium. The caffeine level is high.

    Bring water to a boil. 1 tsp per 6 oz cup. Infuse for 3 - 5 minutes. Multiple infusions possible.
