Extremely tasty!

All in all, this tea is still amazing.

I still rate this tea a 100! Definately recommend this both western and gongfu style! :D


You make this sound gorgeous! – I’ve never tried brewing puerh up western style, I thought it would make the tea way too strong and stewed-tasting, but I might try it out on a couple of samples I have – what sort of parameters do you use for that?


well i suggest you don’t use more than 5g of this nan jian phoenix tea (for western style). 1 min steep should be good. but remember, whats good for me may not be good for you, so experiment. as for other shou. its really an experiment.

i hope this help. im not really good at explaining this :(


‘Course you are! That’s exactly what I meant – how long you steep it for :) I usually go for very short steeps getting a bit longer each time, but I’m keen to try out the way other people brew their teas, to get a new perspective (and possibly an even more delicious cup!) :)


that’s a good plan :D
