Pu Erh Tea Products

Pu Erh Tea Products

For a tea to be classified as Pu Erh, it must be made from the large-leaf Assamica variety of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant and must be grown in the Yunnan province of China. Tea plants from the Yunnan region have large, soft leaves that are spaced far apart on large, tough stems. The leaves grow on trees and bushes in the mountainous area of the world’s oldest tea region. Some of these trees are up to a thousand years old and are treated with great care by farmers, who dedicate they entire lives to creating the perfect cup of Pu Erh. Using ancient knowledge, these farmers carefully tend to both wild-growing and specially planted Camellia Sinensis leaves that are earmarked for Pu Erh production. Years will go by before these fresh leaves are ready for consumption. When they are, however, they will impart a tea flavour which is very different from any other tea. 

Indigo Herbs is delighted to have sourced an extremely high quality Pu Erh Tea, so our customers customers may enjoy the taste and experience of this unique tea.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Grab a teapot, a cafetiere or your tea making equipment of choice.  Use 3g (2 teaspoons) per cup and add boiling water. Infuse for 3 minutes then relax and enjoy. You can re-infuse this tea up to 5 times. 

Pu Erh tea is made from the leaves and stems of the Camellia sinensis plant.The leaves and stems are harvested from wild trees in the Yunnan Province of China by farmers who hold the ancient knowledge of producing Pu Erh tea. After harvest the leaves are heat treated in a process that requires incredible precision - they must be heated for just long enough to halt oxidation but not long enough to reduce all of the moisture and kill the bacteria which is essential for the fermentation and aging process. The tea is then shaped into bricks or logs and stored for the aging process, to allow for the complex flavours to develop. The tea is then tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipment. 

Contains caffeine, as with any caffeinated drink it is recommended to consume in moderation.
