Pu-erh Iced Tea

Summer is here! A glass of iced tea sure sounds tempting in a hot summer day. Have you ever tried Pu-erh iced tea? Making Pu-erh iced tea is very easy. Here is how:

Tea: Black Pu-erh or aged green Pu-erh. Aged green Pu-erh is very expensive. Given that aged green Pu-erh lasts many infusions, you may use leftover tea leaves from your formal brewing to make Pu-erh ice tea.

Step1: Add 1L water to a clean pot, preferably ceramic pot, boil water to boiling.
Step2: Rinse 5 to 10g Pu-erh leaves with boiling water.
Step3: Add the rinsed Pu-erh leaves to above boiling water and let it boil for 15 to 30 seconds or till the water turns into chestnut reddish color.
Step4: Pour tea liquor into a container and chill it in the refrigerator.
Step5: Enjoy! - Pu-erh is known for quenching thirst.
