dark tea/pu-erh (bulk)

Pressed into heart-shaped cakes, this tea follows the century-old tradition of creating bricks of tea for use as currency or for efficient travel by ship or camel. This tea’s sensual, easy-to-enjoy flavor releases notes of smooth wood and a delicate, velvety whisper of rose. Veiled in mystery, dark tea is a special category of aged tea from China that is seldom seen in the West and revered for its medicinal effects.

BREWING TIPS: Use one heart in a mug (6-12 oz) and briefly steep for 1-2 minutes, or use one in a larger pot (12-20 oz) and steep 2-4 minutes. This tea can be re-steeped multiple times, presenting a different character with each infusion.

NET WT (per bag): One Pound (16 oz; 453.59 g).  Each pound contains approximately 162 hearts.

  1. The best tea you'll ever drink.

    This tea is absolutely amazing, combining my two favorite flavors, pu-erh and rose!

    The taste is soft and contemplative, taking you on a journey into the ancient!

    I highly recomend you all to try this tea.

  2. New Favorite

    Posted by Steve on 15th Aug 2014

    This is my new favorite tea. The whole "cake" idea was a little intimidating. However, it just dissolves in the strainer so... doesn't really change my process. I love the flavor- it's really awesome.
