From Numi Organic Tea

Puerh is an ancient healing tea known for its medicinal properties and rich taste. Numi’s Organic Puerh comes from 500-year-old, wild, organic tea trees grown in China’s pristine Yunnan Mountains. The maturity of these trees yields a superior tasting tea compared to younger, pruned bushes. Unlike traditional teas that are oxidized for an 8 hour period, Puerh undergoes a unique 60-day fermentation process resulting in a bold, earthy flavor with hints of malt and elevated levels of antioxidants. Puerh can be compressed into bricks and aged, like fine wine, for months, years or even decades. This increases its value, health benefits and premium taste.

A lovely pu-erh that is available out from a brand name. I love how this tea can be steeped so many times and it gives off flavors ranging from chocolate down to an earthy flavor. Not only it tastes good but its well within a tight budget! A must have for anyone exploring pu-erh or the connoisseur!

Boiling 8 min or more

Dark, bitter-ish, soothing, rich…thought it was vile upon first tasting but now craving it

For a novelty packaged puerh tea from an American company designed to look like an upper end chocolate bar, my expectations were not that high. While they say that it can be brewed 4 times, I would recommend dumping the first brew as it almost made me give up on the tea. The second brew is where things got more interesting as it does indeed have some chocolate flavor notes mixed in with the earthy smoothness that I must admit I was skeptical of upon seeing it in other reviews as that is not common when it comes to puerh in my experience. Overall this is not the greatest puerh but at the same time likely represents a potentially good entry level one for somebody that wants to try one they can pick up locally.

If you had done a “wake up” brew as recommended, you may not have needed to dump a whole steeped pot.

By first brew I mean the first brew after a quick rinse or wake up brew as you call it. I brew my puerh in a smaller gaiwan and this is a tea that I would advice rinsing twice compared to most that I only rinse once. Also think you for the article that is the best intro to brewing puerh that I’ve seen yet which I bookmarked to be able to share with people that are new to puerh.

Oh, gotcha. And, you’re welcome :-)

This sintered tea dust puerh block is horrible.

It stinks of fish when steeping, chalky in the mouth. The taste is undeveloped, has no depth, and leaves a grime ring in your cup. The following steeping just becomes thin and displeasing.

This tea does not even rate compared to real puerh from a beeng cha or tuo cha.

Don’t waste the money on this. Seriously.

I’ve tried all the bagged loose leaf Numi pu-erhs and was pretty disappointed, then I came across this chocolate bar brick. I have to say, for the affordable price this is a very decent pu-erh. Pretty mellow, easy drinking taste so it’s a good default pu-erh to have in your cupboard. And I love the chocolate bar presentation, very fun. Worth the price.

One should definitely follow the instuctions regarding “waking up” the tea leaves; otherwise, you will want to dump the first pot as it will be decidedly non-delicious.

The first steeping following the initial “wake up” brew is tasty, but strong. I steeped in 10oz of filtered water for about 2 minutes, and it was still stronger than expecteed. I prefer a milder taste if I am tasting it straight, without milk or sugar. And I prefer to taste it straight.

The 3rd & 4th steepings were right up my alley because I generally prefer a milder tea that also retains max flavor – a tall order, I know. The first two steepings tasted like generic black tea – which I am not a fan of. I much prefer the subtleties of the later steepings.

The fantastic aspect is that just one broken-off bar can produce a solid 30 – 36 ounces of liquor. Even though my husband had 2 cups and I had 4, I have refrigerated 16 ounces to have in the morning. I hope that doesn’t decrease the probiotic benefits.

It is certainly a good tea, but my ideal taste would be to steep 4 times, in more water than recommended, and then combine all 4 resulting liquors into 1 pot. I will update this review once I try that.

Though this is definitely a better-quality pu erh than that often found in grocery stores, it has the usual problem of being mistreated in transit/storage in a way that makes it taste “off.” I’ve bought it from two different sources, one online and one offline, and both times found it to have the fishy taste that you get when pu erh has been stored improperly. I’m guessing that somewhere along the line it spent too long in a hot storage center.

The fish taste doesn’t mean the stuff’s going to poison you! It’s just not how it’s intended to taste. If you’re determined to purchase it, maybe try ordering directly from Numi’s website.

Pretty decent tea, first steep was too short for me. Has a nice clean malty taste to it.
