2. Rinse it by adding boilded water and pouring it off immediately.
3. no need for milk as there is absolutely no bitter or acidic aftertaste.
4. And you could make it for for boiling Chinese tea eggs. lol

The difference between Shou (Ripe) and Sheng (Raw) Pu Erh Tea
Ripe Pu-erh (Puerh Shu, Fermented Tea)
This tea does go through a piling process which causes it to be a dark, rich flavor. It has a very earthy taste, and it is a more mellow tea, but it does have a thick flavor to it. Because of the fermentation process before it is packaged or compressed produced from large-leaf tea plants in Yunnan, China, the leaves are actually a reddish-brown.
Raw Pu-erh (Puerh Sheng, Non-Fermented Tea)
This is a tea that does not go through the piling process, which is called raw pu-erh, it is harvested and stored naturally. The color of the tea is light yellowish green. The longer that you store this tea, the mellower that it will get. With this style of tea, it has a very fresh smell to it, it can be bitter, but generally has a sweet aftertaste and we would call it bitter sweet taste. Aged sheng is much more vibrant, lively, and complex.
With Pu-erh tea, the packaging is generally two different colors, that is how people tell them apart and get to purchase the tea that they like. Red for compressed Ripe Pu-erh and green for compressed Raw Pu-erh.
