Break off a small piece and gently crumble it into a teapot or Gaiwan. Quickly flush (cover the leaves with hot water and pour it off) and appreciate the aroma of the wet leaves. Then infuse with near-boiling water for 1-3 minutes and serve. Puerh may be re-steeped 3 or 4 times. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
