drank Pu Erh by Adagio Teas
558 tasting notes

Rolled another “1” this morning and this was the tea to drink. This was my first pu. I don’t think it will be my last. But it will definitely take my tastebuds a LONG time to start tasting more than dirt and earthworms. I’m sharing my geek pride tea with my husband and I believe this has been the second most awful (just slightly higher than the other “1” tea). I couldn’t handle more than three sips of this tea. It is just not my thing.

Meghann M, did you do a longer steep like 3-5min? You may be like me and prefer a short steep following a rinse. And if you still find shu pu erh isn’t your thing, still try sheng. (IMO) it’s SO much better:)

Once I get through more teas in my cupboard I may try another. I still have yet to try the GM chai pu-erh. I can’t remember if that is the only pu in the sampler pack…if not, i have experiences ahead of me!

Oh, and I did do a longer steep. It was around 4 minutes as that’s what the bag suggested.

Meghann M- the chai and regular pu erhs are the only pu erhs in the sampler.

Oh so sorry! This version was my first Pu Erh too and I found it utterly nasty. There is another one in the GM packet and it’s much much better than this. This is vile. :P I’m so proud that you made it three sips (I think I made it through 1/3 of the cup). This tea was the inspiration for the “3 sip” rule. ::shudders::

Rabs

Oops — I’m the DM and forgot my own rule: it’s the “1 sip” rule (not 3 sips). Huh, I think that I was too nice rule-wise ;)

Meghann M

You may have been too nice, 3 sips was alright…they were tiny sips. Because the tea was hot, yes, that is why, the tea was hot, very hot!

Glad to hear GM’s are better. I may give one from the sampler a try tomorrow. I’ve had too much black tea this evening. Suffering from a bit of a caffeine high. Must go for a walk or something!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
