This step is called “wo dui” (moist track) which is the most important part and this is where the tea grows into its character within time. Its blended with an herb called Nuo Mi Xiang that gives it that rice flavor. One bold but smooth cup with a history that sticks to each leaf of the Pu-erh and lives on through the trades and craftsmen and woman who cultivate it with their ancestors technique.  First pour boiling water over the tea quickly one time.
