Got my order from Adagio today...white peony and pu-erh dante.
Question: the pu-erh was in a tin, the white peony in a paper bag.
I thought pu-erh should be kept wrapped in paper, and other teas kept in tins to protect from light and air.
Can someone explain?
I am having my first cup of pu-erh right now, and although it smells different...kinda like old paste..it tastes (to me) a lot like regular black tea...
I actually think I like it better...a tad milder than some I'm used to (out of teabags...lol...)
It is kind of orangeish in color.
Wel, I guess I'll just keep drinking it, and steep it for various times with various amounts of leaf, and see what happens!
So far, so good...
