These tea leaves have been aged in a mandarin rind to impart sweet citrus notes that balance out the rich, earthy flavor of pu'erh (aged) tea leaves. This version uses black tea leaves and brews up darker than its white tea counterpart. If you are new to pu'erh you may want try the white version first.
Though pu'erh (aged) teas are not technically black teas, they brew up quite dark with an earthy flavor and dark cup color. Unlike black teas, however, they yield multiple infusions and have a very low acidity. Though some people liken their fragrance to freshly-turned earth, pu'erh tea is gentle on the stomach and was reputed to aid in digestion and cleanse the blood by the ancient Chinese.
Ingredients: black tea, mandarin rind.
