Blend Numerology

No. 77: A good time to bet on 77.

Preparation

Bring spring or filtered water to approximately 212°F. Dislodge a 7g piece of pu-erh (approximately the size of a silver dollar). Steep in traditional gaiwan method—making multiple infusions, starting at 10-15 seconds and increase 5-10 seconds with each steeping. 

Storage: Unlike most tea, pu-erh improves with age and may be enjoyed for years. For best results, we recommend storing in a cool, dry place that is temperature controlled. Do not place near other aromatic ingredients such as coffee.
