This small, dense raw brick is surprisingly sweet for such a young puerh (pronounced POO-ar). It has a smooth, round texture, underpinned by a lovely structure of light astringency reminiscent of dry, floral hops. In the aroma, you can find everything from melon to wet wood, flint to leathery musk. There’s also the slightest touch of peaty smoke, and a wonderful cooling quality that lingers on the palate long after drinking. This little tea contains multitudes.

2013 Raw ( sheng) Chinese Puerh Tea.


  1. Break off approximately one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves into your infuser.
  2. Heat water to 190° (just before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
  5. Remove infuser and enjoy tea.


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 190° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve!


Though we don't necessarily recommend drinking Yellow Bird 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.
