Numi's Aged Pu∙erh Tea Brick is a compressed bar of loose pu∙erh tea leaves. Unlike traditional teas that are oxidized for 8 hours, Pu∙erh undergoes a unique 60-day fermentation process resulting in a bold, earthy flavor with hints of malt. Pu∙erh is compressed into bricks and aged, like fine wine, for months, years or even decades. This increases its value and rich taste.
Flavor Woodsy, malty, deep earthiness
Brewing Instructions Break off 1 square portion and place in a 10 oz. teapot. Pu•erh should be rinsed before steeping to awaken the sleeping leaves: pour boiling water to fill the pot halfway, swirl for several seconds and pour out the water. Fill the teapot and place a lid on the top; steep to desired strength, or 2 minutes. Strain into your cup or a serving pitcher and enjoy! Each portion may be steeped 4 times. Recommended steeping times:
