Full leaf fermented tea from Yunnan, China.
No. 78: Number of hours this tea ferments before being pressed into its cake form.
Bring spring or filtered water to approximately 212°F. Dislodge a 7g piece of pu-erh (approximately the size of a silver dollar). Steep in traditional gaiwan method—making multiple infusions, starting at 10-15 seconds and increase 5-10 seconds with each steeping.
Storage: Unlike most tea, pu-erh improves with age and may be enjoyed for years. For best enjoyment, store in a cool, dry place that is temperature controlled. Store away from other fragrant ingredients such as coffee to avoid contamination.
