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
