Silk Road Adventure Organic (Pu'er Cakes)
This variant is currently sold out.
The Silk Road, a 4,000-mile trade route, extended from China to Central Asia to Europe. Silk, spices, and compressed tea, like this Pu'er, were traded. Smooth & full-bodied, this probiotic tea is a great coffee substitute.
Tea Type & Flavors: Dark (pu'er) | full-body but very smooth, grilled wild mushrooms, sweet tobacco
Function: Dark (pu'er) tea is fermented & probiotic. The Chinese believe pu'er lowers blood pressure as fermentation produces statins-blood pressure-lowering compounds. A great coffee replacement.
Ingredients: China, Yunnan Province Pu'er (Dark) tea
How to Steep: Western-Style: One Tea Cake, 20 oz water, 212°F, 5-6 min. Re-Steep tea leaves. Eastern-Style: Tea Leaf Rinse: pour boiling water over cake until covered. Immediately pour off water. Steep #1: 30 sec. Decant liquid from leaves & enjoy. Increase each additional steep 15 sec until flavor fades.
Fun Fact: Like Champagne and its specific origin, fermented tea must come from an area of Yunnan Province to use the name Pu'er. Fermented teas sourced outside of this area must use the name Dark Tea.
