The 7598 ripe tea launched by the Haiwan Tea Industry in 2007, which has been hand-made pressed by traditional stone molds, has been aged for nearly 12 years. It can clearly see that there is tea oil on the outer packaging and some bugbites and minor damages, but it does not affect the quality and the taste of tea.
It is recommended to use bigger tea sets such as ceramic sets, Yixing Clay sets or gaiwan to brew pu’erh tea, to enjoy the better quality and characteristic of pu’erh tea’s color, aroma and the taste. 90°c to 100°c of water temperature will be better.
For best tasting result, the pressed pu'erh tea should be pried to loose form and exposed in the air two weeks before brewing.
Ratio of tea and water: 1g:50ml (depending on personal taste)
