Note that we also offer a range of single estate Gushu productions that highlight the nuances of different areas in the Yiwu mountain range even further. There are variations in terroir which further affect the nuanced traits and the gushu trees produce leaves that are able to highlight the traits of their terroir. The Gushu Explorer packs are recommended for more experienced drinkers of Puer wanting to learn about these differences.

We highly recommend starting with gongfu style brewing using 7-8 grams of tea in a 100ml gaiwan.
Our own preferred style of brewing is 8-10 grams tea, 100ml gaiwan, flash steeping with boiling water to start and increasing the brewing time according to strength of taste.
If, for any reason, you are brewing broken leaves instead of whole leaf, we recommend increasing the water to tea ratio - 20 to 25ml per gram, as broken leaves release flavour much more quickly than whole leaf.
