$5.50

Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

Weight: 50 Grams

Wild grown Jiaogulan (绞股蓝) from Mangshi county of Dehong!  Grown in the mountains of southwestern China for thousands of years, Jiaogulan is a wild herb that has been consumed as a tea or in soups.

You can brew Jiaogulan much as you would a green tea, pu-erh or oolong.  Measure 5 grams per 100ml brewing device (gaiwan or cha hai).  Use 90-95c spring water and wash once briefly to activate the Jiaogulan.  Drink successive infusions.  Brewing time can increase after a few steepings (start with 25 seconds).

The taste is sweet with some bitterness to counter it. Contains no caffeine whatsoever!
