drank Pu Erh Pearls by Adagio Teas
358 tasting notes

Can I just say the UX on this site leaves a lot to be desired? There is no reason for me to have lost as many notes as I have…

That being said…this was my first puerh and this was the last of it. I was looking for something to mindlessly drink and warm up with until lunch yesterday, so figured it was a good chance to finish this stuff off. Threw a ball into the gaiwan, did a fairly long rinse and then steeped. The liquor was still pretty light and fishy, so it probably needed more rinsing. Second steep was darky, with a more deep, sweet aroma, and it tasted better, as well. Earth and mushroom notes got pulled out during the few steeps I did, but this didn’t deliver on flavor very long.

All-in-all, I appreciate this tea for introducing me to puerh, which I have already gone much farther (and better) with, and still have much farther to go.

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
