I make my own version of “Portland Breakfast."

Several years ago I bought some of this blend that was perfect for damp mornings here in the Northeast. I started to experiment with the components in this blend, and Pu Erh is an important one that adds a touch of “earthiness.” I just replenished my supply in anticipation of a cold and wet winter. Try it yourself; it’s fun!

Shu cha Pu-erh tea

Rich and earthy. Very good.

Ingredients

Full leaf fermented black tea from the Yunnan province in China- vintage 2012.

Blend Numerology

The number of years the tea is aged in Yunnan and, if Bob Dorough is to be believed, the magic number.

Preparation

For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep 1 rounded tsp (3 g) for five minutes. Contemplate the sound of one hand clapping.
