Classic Black Tea
This odd looking tea is pressed into a "nest" shape or "tuo". Pu-erh is a highly revered tea type from the Yunnan Province that undergoes fermentation during its production- it then can improve with age, developing nuance as a result of microbial activity. This "Shou" pu-erh is richly earthy and velvety smooth.
Preparation: 3g tea (1 heaping tsp) per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew for 4 minutes.
