Puer Teas

Brewing Tips
These teas are fermented, giving them rich and complex flavors.
After steaming and being pressed into cakes or puck like shapes (also referred to as nests), puer teas are post fermented. There are also varieties of puer that are fermented in a loose leaf state, such as our Ancient Puer (#84).

Brewing puer (as compared to black or green tea) is slightly different from other teas due to the fermentation process it undergoes. Bring sixteen ounces of water per serving to a boil.

  1. Measure two teaspoons of loose tea (per serving) into a teapot, tea bag, or infuser, and set it aside.

  2. Once the water has boiled, “rinse” the tea twice with roughly two ounces of water, discarding the water in between rinses.

    1. This removes some impurities that may be left over from the fermentation process and will improve the quality of your tea — so don’t skip this step.

To Brew Puer Tea, steep 1 1/2 teaspoons of tea leaves in 8 oz of hot water for 3-4 minutes.
