Generously sized for teapot brewing, this extra-large pearl gives the term tea ball new meaning. Compressed fermented five-year-old shou style pu erh leaves are wonderfully earthy, smooth and comforting. They take second infusions well as they slowly unfurl or pop one in your travel tumbler for a day of smooth, earthy sips.
Pu Erh Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.
Forming leaves into balls, pellets or pearls is a classic Chinese method of providing a visual delight as the leaves unfold from their round shape. These generously-sized pearls (one will flavor 24 ounces of water) offer an intensely-rich flavor. Enjoy how they relax the body and clarify the mind. Ripened and aged for five years, these shou-style pu erh pearls are traditionally earthy with a welcoming smoothness. Cover the leaves with boiling water for 45 seconds then discard the liquid before steeping with freshly boiled water. Serve in Borosilicate glasses to enhance the pearls’ theatrical dance.
