Put one Puer coin of the tea into a warmed Gai Wan cup and pour on boiling water. Serve the tea after 6-8 minutes.
SHOU (RIPE) PUER
These tea leaves are pressed into miniature coin shapes resembling little sweets. It requires longer than average time for steeping, and then produces an infusion almost as dark as coffee. The first sip is often a surprise, but then the earthy, authentic taste captivates the drinker. A rare delicacy for gourmets.
