From Adagio Teas

Generously sized for teapot brewing, this extra large pearl gives the term tea ball new meaning. Compressed fermented five year old shou style pu erh leaves are wonderfully earthy, smooth and comforting. They take second infusions well as they slowly unfurl or pop one in your travel tumbler for a day of smooth, earthy sips.

Steep at 212° for 5 minutes.

I brewed this one in my gaiwan with a quick rinse which loosened up the pearl enough that it started to break apart when I poured in the water for the second round. The brew was a darker mellow smooth brew with a bit of earthiness in a good way with reasonable refusability when it comes to ripe puerh.

This is less of a review than an update of my personal journey into pu-erh land. I know there are folks in Steepster who have been encouraging this journey, so this note is for them. For those expecting a review, I apologize.

I am still trying to understand my reaction to this tea. It is not at all what I usually like in a tea: it has a tinge of bitterness, a flavor that is earthy and not terribly complex, but slightly sweet. The main positive characteristic is a really great feel in my mouth; kind of like umami. And yet, when I drink it I feel really satisfied. It is also VERY conducive to relaxation, which is something I find very hard to do (serious type-A, with the high blood pressure to prove it).

I recall a discussion about drinking pu-erh for non-taste reasons. Perhaps this is it?

I really love these! It is so handy that one pearl is plenty of tea for one of my big mugs, and I can resteep it over and over again, making practically enough tea with one pearl for all day! I typically do 4 steeps, though I like longer steep times for more intense flavor. I am sure many people can do even more. Great bang for your buck!
