For the most part even people who hate teabags have to admit that they are a necessary evil at times when on the go when bad tea is better than no tea. With that being said while the Ten Ren puerh teabags are by no means the best ripe puerh tea around, it is made of a surprisingly high quality and much better than any other puerh teabag and even some cheap bricks and cakes that I’ve had. The taste is mellow and not earthy although it is a bit on the weak side so I always brew it with double teabags and for a really long time in my efforts to get it stronger. Would likely make a good safe first puerh for somebody that wants to try it as if you do not like this one it is very unlikely that you will like the higher quality ones either.
