A strange thought strike me, what would the taste like if I brew the purple bud Pu Er tea in the glass mug(with a glass insert filter), instead of the traditional Gaiwan brewing?
So I put around 4 g of the tea buds in the glass filter, rinse it quickly with temp around 92. Then pour the water with temp 90 degree and steep for about 1.5 minutes.
um, smell the aroma first, and found out its aroma is not as delicate, or exquisite as brewed in Gaiwan. Tea liquid is brown yellow color, which means it has already changed a little bit due to one year old. Taste is still as mellow, thick and unique taste as usual.
But in all, I still prefer the Gaiwan brewing, which can hightlight its unique natural honey floral aroma, and much thick & mellow taste.
