Golden Nugget Ripe Puerh Brick

Yunnan, China
2012 Vintage

Limited 2016 Vintage. Menghai Factory. A puerh that really has a fermented flavor, similar to wine or soy sauce, even in its aroma. It is a very pleasant and tasty brew that is sure to be enjoyed again and again.

This is a "cooked" or "ripe" Puerh, meaning that the aging process has been simulated during the production of the tea. This yields tea with much of the smoothness and character of a naturally aged Puerh, but without the 15-50 year delay.

Puerh teas typically have as much, if not more caffeine than black teas.

Brewing Instructions

8 oz Cup

  1. Break off approximately one heaping teaspoon of puerh into infuser.
  2. Heat water to 190° F (before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of hot water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep for 3-10 minutes (depending on taste preference).
  5. Remove infuser and enjoy tea. Can be steeped three or more times.

Puerh teas can be brewed multiple times. Re-steep the same leaves, gradually increasing the infusion time until the leaves no longer yield a full flavor.


As above, you will need to break off as many teaspoons of dry leaf into your infuser as cups you wish to drink. Next, place the infuser in your pot and fill the pot with the appropriate amount of 190°-to-boiling water and let it sit for 3 to 10 minutes, depending on how dark & strong you want your brew. If cooler water is used or the steeping time is kept to 3 minutes, the same leaves can be infused 3 times. Remove the infuser before drinking and be sure to watch how strong the brew is going!
