Scottish Caramel Pu erh Tea
Pu’erh gets better with age, as does a fine wine, through its unique process of fermentation. The more time a Pu’erh is allowed to rest, the mellower and more refined the flavour, and the healthier it becomes. Our Scottish Caramel Pu erh is a 3-year vintage, which is considered to be at a more coveted age. This Pu’erh carries a level of sophistication with its decadent flavours; however, it lacks not the traditional down-to-earth Pu’erh flavour and aroma. This is a wonderful daily tea and is especially ideal for mornings or afternoons when something satisfying is needed between meals. Enjoy this lovely cup with sugar cookies or buttery shortbread for the finest experience.

How to brew Pu erh tea?
Puerh’s including this Scottish Caramel Pu erh require a longer steeping time than many teas. To make it hot, add 1-2 teaspoons of this tea for a 10 to 12 oz mug. Water should be near boiling or about a minute off a boil. Let it steep it for 3-7 minutes for an ideal brew. You can also make this into an iced brewed tea. Just brew it hot with 1/3rd the water amount, making a concentrate. Then pour the hot concentrate over ice to lock in the goodness and make your iced tea.
