Gao Shan Yin Xiang
Meaning 'high mountain impression', this raw puerh tea comes from a single farmer's tea garden in Stone Village, situated on Nan Nuo Shan, one of Yunnan's six famous tea mountains. Our Gao Shan was harvested from ancient arbor tea trees over a hundred years old and was stone-pressed in the traditional manner. The laoshu (old tree) origins of this tea are evident in its well-balanced structure, starting with an intensely floral nose, rich buttery palate, and finishing with a firm but pleasing kuwei (good bitterness).
Instructions:
Basic preparation;
Before brewing, hot rinse this tea by pouring boiling water over the leaves and discarding the water. Use 2 teaspoons of tea (about a quarter sized piece) per 8-12 oz of water. Steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

If you are interested in a lighter brew try steeping at 195 Fahrenheit.

If you are interested in a stronger brew try steeping for 3 minutes.

This tea re-steeps excellently a second and third time. To reuse the same leaves, brew successive infusions, not letting the tea sit out for more than an hour. Infuse the tea in the same way as the first steeping, but increase the steep time by one minute for each infusion.
