Shou, or Cooked Puer is the most popular style of Puer in the West. Full bodied, very earthy and smooth, this tea can be left to steep without worry of over brewing. Shou Puer was developed in the Seventies to meet the demands of the domestic and Hong Kong market. The goal was to accelerate the fermentation process, which would normally take 10-15 years through natural aging.
Brewing Suggestions: We recommend using spring or filtered water. Heat to 195F. Use 2.5 g of tea for 12 oz of water. Steep for 5 minutes.
