Tibetan Tea
Made of fermented, coarse tea leaves and twigs, Tibetan Tea is an essential beverage for Tibetan people. It provides energy and important vitamins and nutrients to subsidize their traditionally meat-based diet. "I'd rather live three days without food than living one day without tea." (Tibetan old saying) Cleansing, energizing, and warming.
Instructions:
Although this tea is traditionally made into butter tea, it can also be enjoyed as one would puerh.

Basic preparation;
Before brewing, hot rinse this tea by pouring boiling water over the leaves and discarding the water. Use 2 teaspoons of tea (about a quarter sized piece) per 8-12 oz of water. Steep for 2 minutes with boiling water.

If you are interested in a lighter brew try using 1 teaspoon of tea.

If you are interested in a stronger brew try steeping for 3+ minutes.

This tea re-steeps excellently a second and third time. To reuse the same leaves, brew successive infusions, not letting the tea sit out for more than an hour. Infuse the tea in the same way as the first steeping, but increase the steep time by one minute for each infusion.
