Wo Dui 'Cooked Style' Puer
To reach its destination, the tea traveled through a range of climates and weather often by horse and camelback. For this reason, Puer became known for an aged, earthy quality that is developed along the way. Nowadays, this earthy character can be encouraged by a 'Wo Dui' process. Puer tea leaves are moistened ('wo') with water and stacked ('dui') in piles to undergo a unique post fermentation giving the tea its unique aroma and flavor.
Earthy flavor, dark, deep red color brew with a velvet texture. Very smooth, void of any astringency.
Steep two teaspoons in eight ounces of filtered water for three minutes. Can be re-infused many times.
