The tea leaves of TeaVivre new-coming Pu-erh pyramid tea bags are all from Yunnan province, which is the world’s original production place of tea. It chooses Yunnan large leaf species as material, has two kinds of tea bags: ripened pu-erh tea bag and raw pu-erh tea bag. Both the two kinds are strong, fragrant and mellow.
Ripened Pu-erh tea is fermented after pilling, and then the bitter taste is reduced. It is also called Shu/Shou Pu-erh. It tastes smooth, mellow and soft, with rich fragrance, and suitable for daily drinking.
Raw Pu-erh does not go through the piling fermentation process, so it keeps the characteristic of fresh tea leaves: astringent fresh aroma, strong taste, and bright golden liquid. It is really a good choice for people who love new teas.
Standard Material: Using Yunnan Large Leaf Species as material, fermented by skilled workers and aged before selling.
Traditional Craft: Perfect combination of traditional fermentation and modern techniques, healthy without artificial colorants or additives.
Authentic Taste: Bright red brown liquid, taste mellow and smooth, typical flavor of Pu-erh.
Convenient Brewing: One bag for a cup, easy to clean and bring. You can take it to the office or to travel outside; no matter hot-brewed or cold-brewed, it’s worth a try.
TeaVivre particularly presents the pu-erh pyramid tea bag series. The tea leaves of the pu-erh tea are the high quality Yunnan Pu-erh teas, and the tea bags are made of healthy and environmental corn fiber. The translucent and fine tea bags can let you enjoy the shapes of tea leaves stretching and also make the tea easily dissolve into water and bring out rich mellow aroma. To clean up the spent leaves, you just need to take out the tea bag. The simple brewing allows you to make the authentic teas whenever and wherever you can.

* Required Fields
Thanks for the samples from a while ago, Teavivre! I love rice flavored pu-erh, so I had to give this one a try in the convenient teabags. The pu-erh consists of larger, great quality leaves, mixed with little green leaves that I think are the rice flavoring. Personally, the teabag doesn't look like it contains as many leaves as I would usually steep... but I prefer a LOT of pu-erh sometimes (it's not like pu-erh ever gets astringent because of too many leaves, so I don't think it matters how many leaves are steeped). The flavor is a standard pu-erh, none of the offending, unlikeable pu-erh notes from this burgundy cup. Very sweet, smooth. The rice is present but very light... I'd love more rice flavor. This pu-erh is a perfect pairing with the rice. The strength does seem lighter, especially the later steeps, again probably because I usually steep more leaves. To be fair, I didn't use the recommended (very long) steep time. I'll try that next time. That's the only negative thing I could say about this pu-erh -- the inability to choose how many teaspoons of leaves to steep. Each teabag is probably the perfect amount of leaves for someone else though. Steep #1 // 4 minutes after boiling // rinse // 2 minute steep Steep #2 // 2 minutes after boiling // 3 min steep Steep #3 // just boiled // 4-5 min
I'm a big fan of rice shou, so I stocked up on this during TeaVivre's black Friday sale without even tasting it first. Luckily it is a good one! And SO convenient. The sachets are individually wrapped!!! I'm normally not a big fan of sachets or wasted packaging in general but these are going to be SO convenient for travel. Seriously. Awesome.
Brewed color is coffee-like, and smells earthy with the light scent of cooked rice - very fragrant. Tastes rich and earthy with a hint of sweetness that again would be similar to boiled rice. This is an excellent and convenient option to take with you when not at home and craving a nice cup of pu-erh without any fuss.
I chose this tea purely out of curiosity. I had heard of rice flavored teas but never tried one. I expected a hint of rice flavor mixed with shu puerh, but even the dry sachet smelled strongly of rice – the steeped tea even more so! And there is lots of the glutinous rice flavor in the cup. This tea is the essence of what you smell when your rice boils over a little and the sticky rice water slides down the side of your saucepan and you can smell it all through the house. I am amazed at how much rice flavor is in this. I really want a bowl of rice now! The puerh aspect is an earthy one rather than a horse-y one. The first steep was quite dark, which isn’t surprising since they recommend a 9 to 12 minute steep for this. By the third steep we didn’t even time it and it was fine. Even my youngest daughter, who just started drinking puerh teas a couple of weeks ago, liked it!
