Matcha is one of the most popular teas around. We love the Matcha style and wanted to recreate it with different flavors of teas. We have taken our fabulous loose-leaf Pu Erh Tea and stone ground it into a fine Matcha-style powder.
You may not be familiar with Pu Erh Tea. It is a Chinese specialty that involves rolling and drying tea leaves and then fermenting them. Pu Erh Tea is also known as Dark Tea because the tea leaves get darker as the fermentation process works. Pu Erh has much historical significance. Bricks of Pu Erh Tea were used as currency between nomadic tribes, but are now used just for drinking.
With a sweet and earthy taste, Pu Erh Matcha has mellow after-taste. Pu Erh tea powder, for some, is an acquired taste. Nonetheless, it is lovely and makes for an enjoyable morning or afternoon beverage.
Pu Erh Matcha has many health benefits tea drinkers will also enjoy. It contains calcium, folic acid and Vitamins B1, B2 and B6. Not only that, Pu Erh tea powder helps with:

Pure Matcha powder from black leaves,Pu-Erh Powder.
Pu-Erh Matcha tea is high in nutrients and perfect for any occasion. It's beautiful bright
green color and wonderful taste make it great for every day of the week. Drinking it so often can make it somewhat boring after a while. To keep your Royal
Matcha tea exciting and always something you look forward to, let's explore some ways to prepare it.
As a hot tea, Pu-Erh Matcha's penetrating smell and amazing flavor really come to life. To enjoy
Pu-Erh Matcha as a hot tea:
- Bring your Pu-Erh Matcha powder to room temperature [18°C (64°F) to 23°C (73°F)], and sift through a strainer.
- Scoop 1 ½ to 2 rounded teaspoons of sifted Pu-Erh Matcha into a tea bowl or cup
- Add ¼ to 1/3 cup of hot, simmering water (this may be more or less diluted based on your preference).
- Briskly whisk your Pu-Erh Matcha. As the Matcha begins to dissolve, move the whisk briskly back and forth as fast as you can in the middle of the bowl or cup. The whisk should be vertical and barely touching the bottom of the bowl or cup. Once your Matcha has developed a soft, light foam, slowly lift the whisk from the center of the bowl or cup.
- Enjoy your frothy, healthy cup of hot Pu-Erh Matcha Gree tea!
Traditional with a chill:
- Pu-Erh Matcha is excellent as a chilled or iced tea, perfect for hot summer days and when you're on the run. To prepare chilled or iced Pu-Erh Matcha-
- Get a 16 oz water bottle or glass that accomodates 16 oz.
- Measure ¼ teaspoon (or more if you like) into the bottle or cup with 16 oz of cold water. If you've opened a new bottle, be sure to sip a little so you don't overfill it!
- Shake or stir vigorously to dissolve the Pu-Erh Matcha powder.
- Drink immediately, pour over ice or refrigerate.
- If desired, add a sugar substitute or honey to sweeten it to y our liking.
Red Leaf Tea recently came out with a whole collection of milled teas. They call it their matcha collection, and I've decided to begin my exploration of them with what I'd consider the bravest of the unflavoured ground teas: The pu-erh matcha.
I sift 1.5 teaspoons into a preheated chawan and add three ounces of simmering water. The tea whisks up surprisingly well, but the bubbles disappear almost instantly. No matter how hard I work to whisk it, the froth is gone the second I try to take a sip.
The muddy liquor smells like a hefty shou. I'm not in love with the texture - it's a bit gritty. The flavour is heavily earthy and fishy, which means that combined with the texture, this is a bit like drinking mud. It's not as bad as that sounds, and I often enjoy a nice earthy flavour in my cooked pu-erhs, but it's an odd experience, to say the least. While the texture is harsh, the flavour is surprisingly smooth. It doesn't get bitter until the bottom of the cup where the sediment has settled. It's also much harsher as it cools, astringent and bitter.
To ice, I add 1/2 teaspoon per 8 ounces and refrigerate. It's surprisingly refreshing, but I find myself wavering between thinking it's kind of tasty and kind of gross. I probably won't make it iced again.
Cheaper cooked pu-erh is already so bracing that when it's ground, it makes for a unique, heavy cup. If there's anything this tea has been, it has certainly been interesting, and I look forward to trying more of Red Leaf Tea's Matcha Collection. That being said, I don't think I'll be keeping this one on my shelf any time soon.
