Puerh (pū-ĕr) is an ancient healing tea known for its medicinal properties and rich taste. Numi’s organic pu∙erh comes from 500-year-old, wild tea trees grown in China’s Yunnan Mountains. Unlike traditional teas that are oxidized over an 8-hour period, pu∙erh undergoes a unique 60-day fermentation process resulting in a bold, earthy flavor with hints of malt. This rich, energizing tea is deeply satisfying as a coffee alternative.
Flavor Bold and earthy with hints of malt
Brewing Instructions To awaken and restore, steep 4-5 minutes. Enjoy with or without milk. For iced tea, steep 2 tea bags, cool and pour over ice.
