From Mark T. Wendell

An unusual aged tea from China, Pu-erh is made from Yunnan tea that has been stored to age after oxidation. When brewed, Pu-erh yields a dark, full-bodied brew that has a unique damp and earthy taste. Popular in Chinese tea houses with dim-sum meals, pu-erh has long been valued for its medicinal benefits, believed to aid in digestion and reduce cholesterol. Pu-erh retains its flavor through several infusions. This variety has been compressed into small nest shapes, often referred to as tuocha.

It’s extremely important that the flavor and quality is completely dependent on how many infusions it has gone through.
First infusion: 4 minutes at 212 degrees:
Extremely dark, purple-brown opaque liquor. Smells of wood and fish. When drunk, produces a very dry texture, almost like drinking sawdust. Very earthy, reminds me of camping in the woods. Warming.
Second Infusion: 4:20 at 212 degrees:
Much lighter in color. Much smoother. Still wooden, but a bit of peppery flavor peeks through.
3rd infusion: 5:00 at 212 degrees: Much paler than last brew; golden. Very smooth. Full-bodied, notes of sweet wood and black pepper. Very satisfying.
The third brew is very satisfying. Tons of earthy character in this tea.
