With a deep, bold body that is smooth and earthy with hints of malt, this Numi organic emperor's Pu-erh loose leaf tea is an energizing alternative to coffee. This tea is deeply satisfying, traditionally harvested from the Yunnan province in China. Pu-erh tea is processed in a way to encourage microbial fermentation and oxidation after the tea leaves have been dried and rolled. Once brewed, it contains high caffeine levels, great for kickstarting the day or providing an extra boost in the afternoon.

This Numi tea is perfect whether served hot or iced. To serve hot, simply steep 1 heaping tsp. of tea in 12 oz. of hot water for 4 minutes. Once ready, it's strong enough to handle milk, yet mild enough to be served alone. To make iced tea, steep a little extra loose leaf tea in boiling water, cool, and pour over ice. This 1 lb. bag will make approximately 180 prepared, 8 oz. servings of tea. Make your own original tea flavors by blending with other Numi loose leaf teas for a signature tea that's sure to please.

Loose leaf tea is perfect for creating hand-crafted teas while providing a one-of-a-kind tea experience. It offers the greatest control over how large of a batch you brew and how strong you brew your tea, enabling you to add more or less tea to taste. At the same time, by eliminating the tea bag, you eliminate the waste associated with one, reinforcing your commitment to the environment without sacrificing the flavors your customers know and love.

Step away and savor the experience of sipping a premium tea product, with Numi teas. Since 1999, Numi has been providing quality teas that are rich in flavor, abundant in aroma, and contain 100% real ingredients with no added perfumes, fragrances, or natural flavorings. All of their teas are certified organic, Full Leaf Quality (FOP grade tea and above), and sourced from farms they know and have directly partnered with for years. With Numi teas, you can be sure you're getting the purest, best-tasting organic tea.

Suggested Recipe: Pu-erh Tea and Gruyere Risotto
2 heaping tbsp. Numi organic emperor's Pu-erh loose leaf tea
5 cups water
1 cup risotto rice
1 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 - 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
5 finely chopped spring onions
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring 5 cups water to a boil. Turn off the heat, add Pu-erh tea, cover, and steep for 10 minutes. Strain and set tea leaves aside. Keep tea warm on low heat. In a large skillet, saute spring onions in extra virgin olive oil. When tender, add rice and stir on high heat for two minutes until evenly coated in oil. Add wine and continue to stir until wine evaporates. Reduce heat to medium and add just enough tea to cover the rice, stir, then add one ladleful of tea at a time, waiting until the rice absorbs it before adding more. Stir vigorously. This will take between 15-20 minutes. Check if rice is done and season to taste with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat, add butter and Gruyere cheese (reserving 2 tbsp. for garnishing), and mix thoroughly. Cover and let stand for a couple of minutes to allow the cheese and butter to melt completely and the flavors to combine. Sprinkle with the reserved grated Gruyere cheese, and sliced spring onions and serve.
