Theses are good. They are very earthy and sweet, quite thick with fermentation flavor. There is a slight note to them I do not like as well but it is not very noticeable. I think they are not as good as the equivalent called Puerh Pearls from my local tea shop Clipper Ship Tea Company. They were quite large and I brewed a little too much tea at about 15g because I was too lazy to break one in half.
I brewed these once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 15g tea (two balls) and boiling water for 30 sec.
