The Tea Leaf

Aged Tea Pu-erh 3 Year Vintage

$15.00

China, Yunnan province

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.

Contains Caffeine.
