From Adagio Teas

Black tea from the Yunnan region of China. Pu Erh tea, perhaps the most esoteric of Chinese varieties, has a pronounced earthy aroma and taste. It is very popular in China due to its notoriety as a slimming diet tea. Recent studies seem to support this claim, but attribute this property to all teas. The earthy taste is not subtle. Chances are, you’ll either love it or hate it.

You know, most people will say that pu erh is for the “seasoned” tea drinker. What do I say? I’m not so sure I agree; I am pretty n00b when it comes to tea and I still have a lot to learn, but I enjoy it. Perhaps most people can’t get past the fishy smell of the brew. But to me, it is very faint and unless you’re looking for it, you will hardly notice. The taste is very earthy, but not too overwhelming. I steeped it for only 4 minutes and will extend the steeping time the next time I cross paths with this tea in my cupboard.

This is my first try of a Pu-erh, so I’ll reserve an opinion till I’ve had a few more tastes of it. But first off, it’s not bad. Time will tell.

I think Adagio says to steep this for 4-5 minutes. I tried that and hated it. After going to SF Chinatown and learning some traditional Chinese preparation techniques (gong fu, I think), I enjoy this tea very much. It has a nice earthy flavor and an aroma that reminds me of the fresh hay smell in a barn.

Dark, rich and earthy. A not so delicate, but quite typical Pu erh.

I really disliked this tea. It was worth a shot and I went in with an open mind but could not bring myself to enjoy the taste. It was too much like drinking moss or wet tree bark. I tried adding anything to it; cream, sugar, honey, and realized that nothing will ever make me enjoy this tea. However, I would recommend people to try it because they might like it better.

A pronounced prebrewing scent of dirt and a brewed flavor that reminds me of a forest floor. Unless a tea was absolutely undrinkably bad, I would not rate it as bad, but this tea is not for me right now. Though I can see why it might have its supporters. Its interesting, its been a conversation piece and I have a cup now and then for the experience, but neither an everyday tea nor a favorite.
