Puerh organic black tea is a fermented and aged shou Puerh that contains caffeine. Every time I make a cup of this tea it reminds me of taking a walk in the woods after a light rain; damp earth and leaves, mushrooms, wet wood, saddle leather, petrichor. Flavors are rich, mellow and woody. Brews to a deep, dark coffee color with a reddish tint. Rich, bold and slightly funky.
Try sweetening with honey or real maple syrup. Use freshly boiled water and steep 4 minutes. Also makes an excellent iced tea. Puerh organic black tea pairs especially well with chocolate desserts. Really, try it!
