Ripe (Shu) Puerh Tea
3.5 oz. round cake brews approx. 50 cups.
Our tasters all agree that this dark puerh (pronounced POO-ar) cake is smooth and earthy. It is an easy drinker with distinct notes of leather, peat, mushroom and ocean. The tea leaves for this bespoke cake were harvested in 2012, and pressed into cakes in 2013.

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 Yong De 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.
