I wasn’t too wild about the first pu’erh I tried from Numi Organic Teas, but I’m not ready to write them off just yet! Now I’m trying Emperor’s Pu’erh. (Sidenote: I wish Numi put as much effort into describing where the teas came from than they do into their flowery steeping directions.)
For a bagged pu’erh, it’s not half bad! There’s a nice depth of flavor here, but not so much that you don’t forget this is a bagged tea. There’s nice notes of chocolate — a bit similar to this grand leaf pu’erh — but much milder. If you need a pu’erh in a pinch, this should do just fine.
