This velvety infusion combines black pu∙erh tea and organic cocoa. Accented by sweet orange peel, this decadent blend is rounded off with nutmeg and cinnamon for a spicy finish. 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.
Flavor: Velvety and rich
Brewing Instructions: To awaken your spirit, steep 4-5 minutes. Swirl your cup, as the chocolate may settle to the bottom. For iced tea, steep 2 tea bags, cool and pour over ice.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring water to a boil in a pot. Steep 1 tea bag for 10 minutes. Squeeze and remove. In medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and contents of other tea bags.
