Dark tea is a Chinese tea similar to pu’erh. Aged and fermented, dark tea has a wonderfully rich and complex flavor (and steeps multiple times, with varying layers of flavor appearing from each level).  We combine the dark tea with rose petals and vanilla for an inviting, aromatic brew.  If you haven’t had much experience with pu’erh before, we believe dark tea is an excellent introduction.  This particular blend we feel is also excellent to share with friends plus good foods and good conversation.

Our dark tea is pressed into heart shapes before aging – the tea was originally pressed into cakes by tea merchants to help the tea survive long journeys.   These heart shapes are just the right size for a cup – just pop one into your infuser and brew as normal.

Each pouch contains approximately 10 hearts (1.5 oz). Each heart is approximately 5 grams of tea.

Even better on the second steep!

Very enjoyable aroma and flavor. On the second steep, more of the rose and vanilla emerged to pleasant effect. Definitely don't toss those leaves until you've gone around at least twice with them, and depending on time, temperature and volume, you can get up to three steeps. Quite a tasty tea. I had originally intended to gift them, but then I tried one and decided I was going to be greedy and drink them all myself. ;)

Fantastic Little Hearts

The smell of these is FANTASTIC. It smells floral with a hint of vanilla underneath. The taste is fabulous. I like to to brew them in a gaiwan, starting with about twenty seconds and adding about ten every successive steeping. The flavor holds over many re-steeps. Even at the end, I can taste floral notes with a slightly sweet aftertaste. These would be a fantastic introduction to pu’erh. And they’re so gosh darn cute.

I loved this tea. It was everything I’d hoped it would be and more after reading the description online.


Light and earthy

A light and earthy tea. The heart shape is perfect to plop in my water and watch it open to become a beautiful mix of flavors. Honey and a dash of cream makes this tea a delightful afternoon drink with a hot cinnamon roll.

Tastes great, but not really Pu'erh

Tasty tea! Cute shape and easy to use, just throw one heart in a strainer and use for multiple steeps. Very rose forward flavor in the initial couple of cups. I've had pu'erh before from another company, and didn't really love the flavor that much (too earthy). This tea is delicious and nothing like that other stuff. I tried in on the recommendation of other members in the tea club, and I'm so glad I did!

Ingredients: Dark Tea (Pu’erh), Rose Petals, Vanilla Essence. Has Caffeine.

Preparation Instructions: Use 1 heart per 8oz water. Steep with boiling water for 3-6 minutes. A longer brew will result in a stronger flavor profile. Dark tea can produce multiple steeps - you'll find less vanilla/rose with multiple steepings but also other interesting notes - we strongly consider it!

Suggested Uses: Great by itself, though you may consider a dash of honey to highlight the various flavor nuances.
