1.5 tsp per 8 oz of water, 212°F, 5 min. This tea can be steeped more than once, but the chocolate note is most prominent in the first infusion.
- Besides being indescribably delicious, this tea is calming as well
- The chocolate flavors harmonize perfectly with the bready, earthy flavors of the tea, and the tea's naturally velvety mouthfeel only makes it seem even more like dessert
- Unlike dessert, though, Pu'er tea may be incredibly healthy for you, because Pu'er is a dark tea. Dark tea is the only category of tea that undergoes microbial fermentation, which produces statins - an ingredient thought to reduce anxiety
- Interestingly, statins are also an ingredient in many blood pressure lowering medicines, and a key ingredient in most cholesterol-reducing medicines
- For many years the Chinese have touted the healthy qualities of Pu'er tea, and they most commonly enjoy it after meals
- Try this tea after a big meal instead of your espresso, and you'll notice it's the perfect finale for a feast!
