As with most "cake" Puerhs, the amount of tea used is rather difficult to measure since you will have to break off a part of the cake to make the tea and it is almost impossible to get exactly the amount you want. If you're someone who just kind of goes with the flow, then adjust steeping time and temperature according to the amount of tea. You can easily adapt and it will work just fine. However, most people want some kind of structure to follow, so we recommend 3-5 grams of tea for approximately 6 oz of water. Use hot but not boiling water for short repeated steepings, after each infusion, decant into a serving pitcher or another cup to enjoy. Always adjust your steeping time, quantity of leaves and water temperature according to your preference. Use lower temperature infusion to create a more textured mouth-feel and higher temperature to obtain more intensity.
