  • 1 tsp Pu-erh tea leaves
  • 10 oz water


  1. Rinse and warm the tea set using hot water. Simply pour the hot water into the tea pitcher, yixing pot (Chinese clay teapot), and tea cups. Swirl and discard the water.

  2. Place tea leaves in the yixing teapot and pour a small amount of hot water on top. Use only enough water to cover the leaves. Swirl for 2 to 3 seconds and discard the water. Do not discard the wet tea leaves.

  3. If brewing ripe Pu-erh tea, repeat the rinse of the tea leaves once more. Raw Pu-erh tea only needs to be rinsed once so skip to the next step if brewing raw Pu-erh tea.

  4. Fill the yixing teapot with hot water at 195 degrees F.

  5. Cover the yixing pot with the lid. Pour a small amount of hot water on the lid.

  6. After 10 to 20 seconds, the water on the lid should be dry. Once the lid is dry, pour out the tea into the tea cups. Enjoy!
