Ingredients: Pu erh red tea with orange and orange blossom


Pu-erh tea is also known in the West as red tea and its name comes from the Pu'er region of Yunnan China, where it comes from. This is an unusual tea in China, being the largest producer of red or pu-erh tea in the world. Consumed solely and exclusively by the Chinese nobility for hundreds of years. Unlike other teas, which are usually taken fresh after being harvested, the fermentation process of this variety of Camellia sinensis can last from 2 to 60 years in bamboo barrels, which makes the leaves reach a copper color and, therefore, so, also the infusion. It is very rare to find 50-year-old pu-erh tea and there are usually vintages (just like wine) that indicate the different qualities that have been in each year's harvests.

Tea is a natural product generated from a plant, Camellia Sinensis, which is grown mainly in China, and Camellia Assamica, which comes from the Assam region of India. After water, tea is the most consumed beverage worldwide, whether in its white, black, green, oolong or pu-erh (also known as red é) variety.

Preparation: Western Method : The one we usually use in our latitudes corresponds to the Western one. In this case, an approximate ratio of 2 g of tea per cup is used. In the case of Pu Erh, the temperature should be around 90ºC-95ºC and the infusion time between 2-4 minutes.

Oriental Method: It is known as Gongfu and between 5-7g of tea per 100ml of Water are used.

In this case, we are going to make very short infusions, between 15 and 25 seconds, and we are going to use boiling water. When it is at 100ºC, we add it to the tea. With this preparation, you will obtain a concentrated liquor that will provide us with everything that the strands offer us. It is the most recommended for this type of tea and you can make many infusions with the same leaves. The tea yields more in this way although a priori it may seem that we put a lot of it. As an experience, an average of 1.5l of tea is obtained with about 5g-6g with this preparation.

To take it according to tradition, sugar should not be added, but tastes have changed since then and you can sweeten it with honey, sweetener and other sweeteners to taste.
