I let this one steep for perhaps 5 minutes and the result was a gorgeous dark brown-reddish liquid. Very strong yet none of the offensive flavors or odors we sometimes encounter with Shou. I have come to love and appreciate a fine Shou and this is on par with some of the better ones that I have had.
The second steep is lighter yet still full of flavor.
I enjoyed this last week as well and after the third steeping I used the rest for iced tea. I left it sit for maybe a week in the fridge and actually forgot what it was until I tasted it. It was nothing short of wonderful.

Hooray for you!!!! I thought I was along here making Iced Puerh! It’s really good and satisfying…and I like this one too! I like to take this in the car when I’m running around town because it keeps me from being tempted to stop and eat something and blow my diet!

A couple of times I have cold brewed some leaves that still had staying power. I was surprised to find I quite liked it that way!

Bonnie

I figured that you might…you have good taste Amy!

This was the brewed tea. I tried to cold-brew Puerh before and it was’nt that good. Black teas also. I will save cold-brewing for greener teas….

Bonnie

I DON’T cold brew it I use a gaiwan or brew basket then brew how…let it cool down and bottle. If it is too strong I sometimes dilute a bit and sweeten then bottle.

I love shou iced, but I brew it hot and then pour it over ice. Because shou brews so strong, it works out very well and an interesting sweetness comes out.

This shou from Tea Vivre is surprisingly good — as are many of their teas.
