Description

We are proud to offer this exclusive, beautiful Japanese pu'erh tea.

Expertly produced in the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, our JAS Organic Pu'erh tea is a blend from the first and second flush harvests of the year. Prepared by fermenting the high quality tea leaves with organic rice yeast, which produces a smoky-oak woodsy flavor, with a hint of citrus peel bitterness and caramel like sweetness.

Pu'erh is an incredible tea, created centuries ago in China, it is actually live; a pro-biotic, so it is excellent to boost the immune system, it also aids in digestion, and is a wonder for weight loss. This Japanese version of a traditional pu'erh is wonderfully smooth, we highly recommend this premium organic tea.

This is how to do it:
1 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
205F / 95°C
1.5 - 3 min

Not a pu erh lovers choice. Black tea lovers would get a kick out of it. Flaw #1 it is just a roasted fermented hajicha. 2) It doesn't have the kick of a pu erh but rather, of a green tea. 3 If you like Japan, you will like the scent of it.

The Japanese do not make pu-erh or grow the types of tea from which it is made. Pu-erh by definition is made in Southern China (Yunnan) and it's borders from a local Assamica of varying types and degrees of cultivation. It appears the Japanese are performing wo-dui on their tea (most likely Chinensis). So while this may be a type of fermented tea it is not pu-erh. I have not tried but maybe I'll get a sample. There are many types of fermented teas like heichas and lui bao and such so it not like pu-erh is the only one.

Really good tasting Tea, mild taste of peach (do not forget that taste is subjective). I am giving a 4 star only because it is not the usual Puerh taste that you expect. However, I still like it!

Japanese Pu’erh (BestBy: 11-2019).

This is a terrific tea, in my opinion, and this is my third buy of it from Tealyra. Expensive to begin with, the price has risen 11% in the past year, but still worth the occasional splurge. The dry tea is loose, with smallish twist easily measured by spoon, and has a mild, sweet scent. Label suggests 1 tsp per cup (8 oz.) 95C water with a 3 min brew, but that is WAY too strong for my tastes. I use a pennyweight (2.5g) per cup (250 ml) water. As this is Pu’erh, I first rinse the measured tea in a fine-mesh basket under hot running tap water for 10 seconds to remove dust, etc. Then I steep each infusion for 25-30 seconds, up to a minute on the last infusion, to obtain a deep amber, crystal clear tea with great notes of roasted-rice that linger in the back of the mouth after each sip. Five completely flavorful, savory infusions from each pennyweight, before the leaves give out. No foul odors, fishiness, or compost-heap notes whatsoever with this tea. Contrary to other commentary, I find absolutely no resemblance to coffee, either. This tea is smooth, non-astringent, and very pleasing to my palate. For mornings where I’m hurried and can’t enjoy all those infusions, I use 0.5 g tea (1/4 tsp), rinse for 10 s under hot tap water, and infuse in a cup of boiling water for 3-4 minutes a single time only, to obtain a full-flavored, well-balanced cup of tea, discarding the leaves after the single infusion. Highly recommended.
