A smooth five year aged tea from China's Yunnan province which exhibits hints of earth and malt. The relatively high humidity from inside the dark cave where this Pu-erh was aged has mellowed its elemental character in comparison to a younger 1 year aged tea.
Suggested Pairings: Pairs well with rich fatty foods, cheese and chocolate.
Ingredients: Golden Pu'erh Tea Leaves
Brewing: 1 heaping tsp of loose leaf tea, for 7-9 oz of water in the teapot. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep 3-7 min. You may get a few more infusions with this tea so go light on the first brew. It gets better each brew as the leaves open up.
