Wow, straight sweetness from a pu-erh? I’ve never tried a green pu-erh yet (also known as “sheng”?). On to the shopping list it goes!

I grew up with this tea in the house in Australia. It is awesome for me because it reminds me of home!

I grew up in Germany, but this is still my “family tea”. Wherever I go, I brew up pot of this stuff with a little bit of milk and sugar, I feel right at home. Totally see eye to eye with you, even in the other hemisphere.

On a sidenote, the stuff they sell in bags is totally unrelated to the loose leaf variant. And not in a good way.

First off , just straight awesome!! I brewed it for 45 seconds and the brew had a emerald colour, the taste was that of steamed spinach and melted butter, the texture was like you were drinking melted butter! MMMMM and I got 3 steepings out of it, a first for a tea from adagio.

Good to know , I will pick some up next time I order, thanks for the heads up. I have also made some signature blends on ADAGIO and I got multiple infusions from them.

I must say, I love silver needle tea, but adagio’s silver needle was somewhat of a disappointment. First it was almost old looking (the leaves), the color was ok in the tea the taste was very bland, your artichoke notes, toasted grain. there was not very much after steeping once. One steeping was all I got. score 85

Maybe it needs the suggested 7 min.

I did that later and it was strong, but there was some sort of muted flavour to it.
