Preparation of Sheng Pu Erh pearls
This Sheng Pu Erh should go with the Gong Fu Brewing Method
be prepared to get the maximum enjoyment out of the noble tea balls.
1. Rinse a pearl with boiling water in a gaiwan or teacup, pour the water away after 3 seconds. This infusion is not for drinking, just rinse the tea and loosen the pearl.
2. Pour the boiling water over the pearl and count up to 20 seconds if you want a smooth and sweet tea, but up to 40 seconds if you prefer a strong tea. Pour the tea into a cup to enjoy.
3. The above process can be repeated for the later infusions, only that the brewing time should be much shorter (5-15 seconds), as the leaves will now loosen and the tea can be ready to drink very quickly. After about 5 infusions, the time can be longer again (20-40 seconds), as the leaves are now weak after many infusions.
