All of us at OBTC love Pu Erh teas but Irish Pu Erh is quite unique.
Our Irish Pu Erh was inspired by a blend from Peacock Green, a quaint little tea shop Bailey, one of our owners, found while traveling through Ireland.
Being a Pu Erh lover, I immediately gravitated towards the small selection of Pu Erh teas. A tea blended with Pu Erh, Yerba Mate, and Lemongrass caught my eye because those are some of my favorite ingredients but I had never tasted them blended together."
Most of our Pu Erh blends are woodsy, earthy, and more dessert-like (i.e. Chocolate Orange Pu Erh, Pecan Pie Pu Erh, etc.). In contrast, this Pu Erh blend was bright, refreshing, and fruity.
Peacock Green calls their blend "Pu Erh Fitness Tea," which is very fitting for this blend!
After enjoying a daily cup during her stay in Ireland, Bailey came home with a small sample to share with Paola, our OBTC Herbalist and Master Tea Blender. When Paola mastered the recreation, the blend quickly became a staff favorite. Paola asked Bailey what the blend should be called but, after several months of planning and discussing the blend, it felt like it already had a name: Irish Pu Erh.
Irish Pu Erh is now one of our favorite blends to enjoy iced and unsweetened, but is also great with a spoonful of Cat's Claw/Mesquite or Orange Blossom honey. This blend is balanced with the woodsiness of Pu Erh, the brightness of Yerba Mate, herb-y Lemongrass, sweet apple and tart rose hips.
Bailey reached out to Peacock Green to let them know we loved the blend so much we had to recreate it in the United States. We keep up with this cute little tea shop on Instagram now and will hopefully be back to visit them with a sample of our version of Pu Erh Fitness Tea!
Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
