How to brew - Sheng Puerh Tea

Puerh is a type of tea that is fermented over time, either through cooking or aging. Sheng puerh is a style that is allowed to naturally ferment with age. It comes in different forms, often in the pressed forms like the cake/"bing" shown in the video, in bricks, or in loose leaf "maocha" form. This technique is a starting point you can use to start brewing puerh: the most important thing to remember is to use short infusions with very hot water and a higher amount of leaves. You can make adjustments according to the tea and your own flavor preferences. Shown in the video: Yiwu Chun Jian Sheng Puerh (2012), from Yunnan, China. If you have any questions, email us at info@tealet.com.

Oolong tea sometimes comes in this balled style, where the leaves are tightly rolled. It is most common in Taiwanese and Chinese teas.

You might like to use a higher temperature on the first infusion to get the leaves started, as it takes time for them to unfurl. Shown in the video: Zhushan Oolong (Taiwan). If you have any questions, email us at info@tealet.com.
