I Love this tea. It's like a black tea but without the astringency. It's very smooth, kind of has a light oilyness to it, and the more you resteep this tea the smoother it gets. It's a good tea to go with savory and sweet pastries. The Chinese normally offer this tea at dim sum because it complements everything on their menu. I have tried many Pu-er

Great Tea - After a recent side tasting with Sheng Pu'er, and also learning its history, I am able to appreciate it even more. I'm really impressed with the flavor profile have to admit this was a delightful surprise in a cup. Very smooth and holds it's flavor and color after the second steeping, which truly blew me away.

This tea is definitely one for the tea connoisseur. If you are searching for a tea that is tea forward, I'd definitely recommend trying this tea - Definitely worth every cent, and a little goes a long way.

This tea is fantastic tasting. It's smooth, rich and has a light nuttiness that I like. The aroma warms up the room. Best part is you can steep it multiple times and still get that rich balanced tea flavor.

Note that Pu-erh, or Pu'er is spelled variably within this article and even on different sizes of the product available here have labels that vary. This makes it very difficult to find on the search engine, which is not 'sloppy' enough in my experience to recognize at least my own particular variants in spelling, which did away with hyphens and apostrophes.

I'm re-emphasizing the need to experiment with amounts and times in brewings, and it's also found that more time is necessary in the later brews. I've heard it suggested that when you get the desired results from the first post-wash brew, that you add 20 seconds per brew to each subsequent brew. For example, first brew, one minute; second brew, one minute 20 seconds; third brew, one minute 40 seconds; fourth brew, 2 minutes, and so forth.

A glass serving container or a shallow tea mug with a white bottom will make color determinations easier. The colors of these teas can be very lovely and enhance the overall experience.

This is a wonderful tea, but your presentation of it is overly brief, if not inaccurate.

The idea that you brew this tea without rinsing it briefly with boiling water (although a minority prefer it that way), and that you use so much of it for a 16-ounce pot, and that you re-brew only once, may be a misreading of your ad.

The Tuo-Cha form provided could be re-brewed with benefit in flavor for as many as six to eight times, might actually serve as well broken in a half or a third for that much tea. It also, in my experience, should be brewed for a minute, or you might want to experiment for best flavor. This tea is low in caffeine, but it's really energizing, I find, and many swear it's a tremendous cholesterol-lower-er.

It should be light in color after brewing; don't brew it by color. It's great sipped straight up but is perhaps the best of all milk-and-sugar teas.

The ancient-trees pu-erh story is so fascinating you'll want to read about it.
