good puerh teabag?

Postby jogrebe » May 10th, '06, 01:56

Ok I know that this probably sounds like a heretical question asking about puerh in teabags, but there are times like at school where loose tea and multiple infusions are not practical. I considered buying those iron shut filter bags to make my own but I feel like it would be a waste of my puerh as they would only really be used once on the go at school, so if anyone has any suggestions of better tasting puerh (for a teabags) please speak up.

While I can give you several specific pu-erh suggestions, the only way to find out what you will like for yourself is to order some samples or go with the ones you've tried before. Have you tried Adagio's Pu-erh Dante? If you like it, then you can definitely use it.

As for myself, if I were to put pu-erh into tea bags on the go, I would probably go for a slightly aged (2-5 years) raw inexpensive pu-erh.

Just as a side note, whichever kind of pu-erh you get, I recommend flushing the leaves in the teabag with hot water to rinse at least once. I feel apprehensive drinking unrised pu-erh, imho, because it might be a bit dusty due to time in open storage.

What about using Adagio's teabags? 100 for $3 ain't bad. I used them and they worked great.

Jogrebe, from what I remember, you're buying your tuo cha at $2 per piece. How is it going to get any cheaper? Any teabag tea you use will be more expensive than that...

Good glad to hear it, that was actually the bags that I was considering trying but I wanted to see what others through before to know if there was something else out there.

Yes I know it would be cheaper just to get those 100 for $3 open bags that adagio sells but I'm after the convenience to have something spill proof that I can keep in my bag without any change of it spilling.

Adagio's bags are big enough that you can roll them up at least twice after you have put tea in them. I do this when I travel. I make up a bunch of the bags, roll them (even write the name of the tea on the top sometimes) and then put them in a plastic zip top bag. Works great for me. The bags are 7 inches long total. The flap part is 2 of that 7 inches. I find that if I put them in a cup and then pour the water through the opening it kinda creates a basket like thing and the tea can move around a bit.

I roll up a few of the filters from adagio and keep them in an empty sample tin. I then use a tea filter clip from upton tea imports ($1.80) to hold them shut

Have u tried Ho Yan Hor Gold tea? It is Pu-Er with herbs. Rich herbal aroma and taste without the bitterness.
