Rust & Ruin - Dark Oolong/Shu Pu-Erh Blend
Blended In-House

A non-flavored blend of traditional dark roasted da hong pao rock tea oolong and fermented shu pu-erh tea. Makes for a deep, earthy, toasty tea.

Brewing Suggestions

  • Use 7g (≈2 tsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz) of water.
  • Use boiling water
  • Steep for 3:00, strain leaves, and enjoy!
    • Don't forget to try for multiple infusions! Just add time to each steep.
      • For under 2:00 steep times, add 30 sec.
      • For 2:00 to 4:00, add 1 minute.
      • For over 4:00, add 2 minutes or more.
    • Like milk in your tea? Steep an extra minute!
    • Too strong? Take off a minute, or use 5g of leaf instead!
    • Too light? Kick it up another minute, or use 10g of leaf instead!
    • Wanna do a tea latte?
      • Use 11g (≈1½ tbsp) of leaf per ½ liter (≈17 oz).
      • Steep 2 minutes in ¼ liter (≈8 oz) boiling (100°C/212°C) water
      • Add ¼ liter (≈8 oz) hot milk, steep another 3 minutes.
      • Strain leaves, add sugar if you like (1 tsp usually does it), and enjoy!

We are a small independent operation, and as such we operate inside of our retail space, the Phoenix Pearl Tea Tavern in Red Lodge, MT. We bag teas for orders while also serving in-store customers, including making cups of tea, making food, and selling bulk and retail purchases. Our employees work as quickly as they can, but we don't have a warehouse to operate out of with dedicated employees. As such, orders may take anywhere from 1-5 business days to ship. Thank you for understanding.

    Came to Gwen and explained that my wife was having a problem with coffee. She said she had the same problem earlier in her life and started drinking Rust and Ruin. My wife feels much better
