This was another gift from a co-worker, I can’t believe I got a pu-erh!
I first did a 15 second rinse and soak (where the rinse was discarded).
Next time, as it is a green I want to try less than boiling water.
I tried 2 minutes, 3, 4, 5, and finally at 6 I thought it was strong enough. I am not sure I have the patience for pu-erh tea!

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep #2: 12 ounces, 2 minutes – just as strong as the first brew, kind of getting mad at it b/c I am bored and want something else!

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
