Brewing suggestions. Brew tea with hot boiling water (95-100°C) in a gaiwan or a teapot for Ripe Puer made of porous clay. The proportion is 7 g per 100 ml. The first infusion should last for 15 seconds. After that just rinse water through teapot or gaiwan, increasing the exposure of each next infusion. You can repeat this brewing method up to 10 times.
