The Tea & Horse Road was a trade route between China & Tibet. The Chinese traded tea for Tibetan horses. Teas, like this Pu'er, were traded along this road. Smooth & full-bodied, this probiotic tea is a great coffee substitute.
Tea Type & Flavors: Dark (pu'er) | full-body but very smooth, sweet tobacco
Function: Dark (pu'er) tea is fermented and probiotic. The tea contains "statins" from the fermentation. The Chinese believe this tea lowers blood pressure. A great replacement for coffee.
Ingredients: China-Yunnan Pu'er tea, dark chocolate bits (cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural vanilla), natural & artificial flavor
How to Steep: 2 tsp, 8 oz water, 212°F, 5-6 min (for more body, steep longer)
Fun Fact: Why did the Chinese need Tibetan Horses? These horses were large, raised at high altitudes, and able to withstand cold temperatures -all positive qualities to help the Chinese wage war on other countries! This Pu'er is from Yunnan Province's Menghai County and known as a ripe or cooked Pu'er.
