Puerh Queen, sarsaparilla, honeybush and roasted yerba mate will dance in your mouth! The sweet vanilla-like notes of both sarsaparilla and honeybush, and the chocolatey notes of roasted mate compliment the puerh base in this blend. A great cup of tea to share with the party and also a great intro for those new to puerh.
Extremely smooth for a loose leaf Puerh (pronounced POO-ar), it is known as a "cooked" (to the Chinese) Puerh. Visit our Puerh page and read the introduction to learn more.
Chinese Puerh Tea*, Sarsaparilla, Roasted Yerba Mate, Honeybush*.
- Scoop a heaping teaspoon of tea leaves into your infuser.
- Heat water to 212° (boiling).
- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea.
Puerhs can be brewed multiple times. Re-steep the same leaves, gradually increasing the infusion time until the leaves no longer yield a full flavor.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 212° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve!
Though we don't necessarily recommend drinking Dancing Dragon iced, our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
