Boiled Tea

Black Tortoise Reposing is a seasonal blend jujube, cinnamon bark, honey-fried licorice root, dried ginger rhizome and Five Element blend of puerh teas: The Depths, Pinyon, Ajirogasa, Elixir & Olé—perfect for the winter season and for steeping or boiling. It is a wonderful blend for winter.

You can drink this blend every day throughout the winter. We recommend using a pot on the larger side and decanting the liquor quickly, as you would with ordinary tea. As with our previous herbal blend, be mindful of the teaware you use as the herbs also have a strong flavor. If you use the same pot that you use to brew tea, you want to be sure to remove the blend immediately after the session is over. Unlike the previous seasons’ herbal blends, for Black Tortoise Reposing, hot water is ideal. You can treat this just like an ordinary shou tea in terms of brewing. You can also boil this season’s blend in a large sidehandle pot or a cauldron. 

We will be individually packaging each session of this herb and tea blend. If we put it all into a single bag, it would be difficult to make sure you got all of the herbs in the right amount in each brew. We will use fully compostable packets for each of the blends that come in a box. Dave and Wu De have experimented in depth to achieve the right amount of herbs and tea in each packet. If boiling, you can add more tea as time passes to extend the session.

Each box will contain ten packets, which should last for most of the winter, depending on how often you drink them. If you choose the herbal subscription you will receive the correct herbal blend each season and the quantity can be adjusted at any time.
