So do different types of puerh teas have different preparations?
I had been steeping my puerh for like 5 minutes and it tasted fine but it was pretty dark.
I will definitely keep those things in mind.Thanks for the advice as well! How do you drink the tea for more than one day? Do you save the leaves, or do you save the actual tea and reheat it? I sometimes feel bad when I have tea and can only drink 1 steepings worth and have to throw it away..seems wasteful since it can get so expensive. I usually drink the puerh or black tea. Can this be done with any kind of tea a.e. white, puerh, oolong, black, and green?

Can I pour the tea over the top as well like gong fu method? I'm not sure where to do it since it will get hot water all over the counter. Do they make some sort of tray to do it on? Sorry, newbie here. Thanks!
