HOW TO BREAK PU'ER CAKE INTO SMALLER PIECE
HI, TEA LOVERS,
I truly feel privilege to talk about pu'er tea because it is my passion. Lately, I was asked on how to break it into smaller pieces so that you can insert them into the tea pot. As a result, this article is being written.
When you break the tea, make sure don't break it too small because you had better keep the whole compressed tea leaves. It is advised to use a small thin but not too sharp knife. Should you don't have a pu’er knife, you may use a butter knife as an alternative.
Once the knife is in the edge of the pu’er cake, gently pull the knife with tea up a little. Slowly remove piece by piece, of the size about a $ 1 dollar coin. Do not worry too much about the size of each piece. This is because once it is brewed with boiling water, the flavor will dissolve into the water and the tea leaves will expand.
Perhaps some of you may want to share your creative way of breaking this pu'er cake. The more the merrier. As such, please step forward to share your idea with the rest.
For those who want to try it out yourself via the above method, please do so and have some fun. Please do tell us your experience and trust the above is of assistance to you.
Stay tune and I will share with you another way of breaking this cake into pieces in my next article.
Happy reading and look forward to seeing you again,
