    Fan of Pu'erh

    Pu'erh, like Scotch whiskey, is one of those beverages either people will love or not. I have enjoyed "Stash" teas for quite some time and love that they carry Chinese teas! I would like to see STASH give a tip on brewing pu'erh tea. Bring water to boil, turn off heat, pour this over the tea leaves in your cup (put a Tou Cha in a ball tea strainer for convenience) and allow the pu'erh to soak for 30 seconds then pour the water totally out. Pour water over leaves in cup, steep to desired strength. Enjoy! This is an old process the Chinese call, "Washing the Tea". A good Pu'erh will never get bitter no matter how strong it is brewed. Oh, one more thing; Pu'erh does reduce blood cholesterol due to the bacterial process produces statin compounds. So if you are taking statin drugs consult your Dr. before starting this tea.
