It was my first purea and to be honwyt im scared to try another one i dont know why i tasted and smelled fish their were no other flavors just fish and tea taste. I do enjoy coffee alot tho

I can’t get over the fishiness that Pu’erh has, either. I notice it the most in my Ginger Pu’erh and I don’t know any tips to reduce it.

Do a quick rinse of 20-30 seconds in boiling water, dump that water, and then steep it again as usual. It should get rid of that taste!

What momo said. :) Also, if you steep it in a gaiwan, using short steeps of 45 seconds for the first infusion, and so on, the flavors won’t become so intense.

how does one do a rinse? :D never done one before!

LiberTEAS

A gaiwan makes the rinse very easy. Just pour the hot water over the leaves, count to 10 or 15 and then strain off the liquid. Then brew as usual.

10-15 second rinsing? thats a bit overkill. I haven’t had many flavored pu-erh but I rinse pu-erh for 1-3 seconds, toss water, then first steep is ~30 seconds. second is 15 seconds, third is 30 seconds, and increase 15 seconds for all subsequent steeps. Some pu-erh I increase to 30 second incrementing. I also use ~1.5 tsp in a gaiwan which holds 3 oz of water.
