MORE ON TEA
Puerh tea, Camellia Sinensis var. assamica, orginates from Yunnan Province in China's southwest, the region from which the tea species first evolved and crossed over into human use.
Shou Puerh (meaning "cooked puerh tea") undergoes a specialized aging process to yield a tea which is earthy, malty, dark, and rich, with little astringency and bitterness. Smooth and sweet, this tea has moderate caffeine level and is both energizing and soothing. Replete with probiotics and its own microbiome, it supports digestion and can be consumed while fasting. It can be brewed any time of day, or even across multiple days, with a quick rinse of boiled water every 12 hours.
A clay teapot or gaiwan (lidded cup) is the recommended brewing vessel. Rinse the tea with boiling water before brewing, as this initial step hydrates the dried leaf after decades of aging. Use 5-7 grams of loose tea per session. Expect to steep this Puerh tea 6-10 times. Each steep should range from 15-45 seconds with boiling water. It is recommended to steep for a bit longer and have less tea in the brewing vessel for this classic.
