    • Brewing Instructions

      • Using a puerh knife, tip of a paring knife or with your hand, gently pry leaves from the pressed cake.
      • Rinsing the Leaves: It is common practice to rinse puerh leaves just before steeping.  Simply pour freshly boiled water over leaves, quickly swirl the leaves in the cup and strain, discarding water. Proceed with brewing.
      • Amount: 1 tsp per 8oz/250ml of water 
      • Water Temperature: 205ºF/95ºC
