The idea behind this experiment began to take shape after I read this article on Oolong Owl’s excellent blog about Tisano chocolate tea.
We were at Ikea the other weekend, and I happened to notice that the blue and yellow gargantuan now labels their “Upphetta” cafetières as both a coffee and a tea press.
Having read about instant Pu-erh tea paste (Cha Gao) in a book I have, I thought it sounded like something that would be interesting to try.
I happened across the idea behind this experiment when I was reading the Wikipedia Pu-erh page.
This is a tea making technique I like to call Great Uncle style.
Once upon a time clan Teaist were visiting a shop that specialises in foodstuffs from the Middle East and North Africa.
If the gong-fu style of tea preparation, with its elaborate equipment, detailed methodology, and precise amounts and temperature control represents yin, then its yang can be thought of to be the “Grandpa style” method of steeping tea leaves.
