Darks teas are sometimes referred to as the marmite of teas. However, brewed well (short infusion times, with multiple re-infusions possible - you could drink this tea all day long!), this fermented tea is quite becoming; and one of Té Amor's best sellers.
High in probiotics, it is known to aid digestion and, perhaps!, weight loss.
NB We also stock a raw (sheng) pu-erh – check it out!
Rinse the dry leaves quickly in boiling water before steeping – this gets rid of tea dust, which tends so to accumulate in aged teas. Steep the first infusion for only around 30-60 seconds. Reinfuse multiple times, until flavour and colour dissipates.
