Pu Erh teas in general can be pretty daunting. I bought this tea as part of a set from Adaigo and knew that it was going one of the harder ones to understand/get. I brewed the tea in a few different methods, but tossing out the instructions on the bag gave the most success. This tea needs to be rinsed the first time through, it’s only on the 2nd and 3rd infusion that the flavors comes out. What a color! It was almost completely black, like coffee. This is a very earthy, hay like, musky, garden like tea.
It was my least liked tea in the Adaigo pack but is more of a function of how it is a different type tea compared to the other ones. I look forward to trying others and learning to brew it in a more gentle manner.
