How to Brew Puerh Tea
Puerh tea is unique in that the leaves can be brewed more than once. With each brew, the tea will fluctuate in flavor and become sweeter & sweeter. High quality Puerh tea leaves are typically brewed 20-30 times in the traditional method of multiple, very quick steepings.
Using filtered or spring water will produce the best tea. Fill teapot or strainer with 3-5 grams (about a handful) of Puerh tea leaves OR 1-2 mini tea cakes. Rinse the leaves. Pour boiling water over leaves and immediately discard. Do this 2-3 times. For the first few 1-5 brews, pour boiling water over leaves and steep for approximately 5 seconds. For the next brews increase steeping time according to your personal preference (about 10-20 seconds).
