"Cooked" pu-erh isn't actually cooked. "Composted" might be more of a correct word.
Not very appetizing, is it? They basically let the leaves sit in piles in a warm humid room, under blankets, for a month or two. It was devised in the 70s as a way of speed-aging the tea. It doesn't quite taste like truly aged "raw" pu-erh, but it's delicious in and of itself. Or is it? That's for you to decide.
Don't let one make or break it for you though.. There are some nasty ones and some amazing ones. I haven't personally tried Adagio's.
