Today I am reviewing an aged organic pu-erh tea brick from Numi.
Tea: Organic Pu-erh Tea Brick
Amount of Tea: One Section
Brewing Vessel: 120ml Clay Teapot
Type of Water: Bottled Water (Reverse Osmosis)
Rinse Time: 10 Seconds – 10 Seconds
Steep Time: 20 Seconds – 25 Seconds – 30 Seconds
Classic ripe pu-erh tea flavor, with no fishiness or off notes.
Rich, smooth flavor. Dark and malty. Wet forest.
It’s not bitter at all and this tea is probably approachable enough to offer to tea drinkers who aren’t yet familiar with ripe puer tea.
I wouldn’t necessarily consider this a special or unique pu-erh tea in any way, but for a ripe puer tea from a well-known brand which you can actually purchase at some grocery stores in the United States of America, it’s rather good.
Flavor notes: Sweet malt, roasted cocoa bean, forest floor, and mushroom.
