Pu-erh or Puerh or Pu erh green tea is enjoyed by the Chinese and is commonly referred to as “the Dim Sum” tea due to its popular use as a digestive aid after eating heavy or greasy meals. Pu-erh tea is made from the leaves and stems of the Camellia sinensis plant. This is the same plant that is used for making green, oolong, and black teas. Pu-erh Tea undergoes a long period of aging for better flavor. This particular grade of Pu-erh has been aged for 15-30 years.
Zen's Pu-erh has an earthy taste and can be brewed 5-7 times per teaspoon, so be sure to not throw away the tea leaves! After the first brew, add 1-2 minutes for every brew that follows. For example, the second brew can be brewed for 2-3 minutes, the third brew can be brewed for 4-5 minutes, etc.
