Preparation Methods :
We recommend using between 5 and 8g per serving for this tea. Traditionally, the first infusion rinses and "wakes up" the tea and is then discarded. For the actual brewing, it does not require long infusion time like preparing other kinds of teas. Instead, you have to brew it in the "touch and go" style. As soon as you pour the Gaiwan full, place the lid on Gaiwan and then immediately pour out the tea liquor. It is recommended to accumulate the 1st and 2nd infusion into a pitcher in order to even out the flavor and taste. For each subsequent brewing, no more than 5 second is recommended. By brewing in such "touch and go" style, you can brew up to nearly 20 times.
To break off pieces from the Pu Erh Tea brick, use a letter opener or similar shaped knife. Insert the knife or letter opener into the brick and gently loosen and lift a piece off. The aim of breaking the brick in this way is to keep as many leaves intact as possible.
Hint: Shorter steep time for more sweetness.
