Thank you Liquid Proust for this sample. This tea was good. I’m not sure when the taste of the jackfruit ended though. It would be nice if the taste of the jackfruit was more prominent. I steeped 4.6g of this tea in a 50ml gaiwan twelve times. The tea itself was quite long lasting. I’d guess I lost the taste of the jackfruit somewhere around steep four or so. I do think there was a bit of a sweet aftertaste from the jackfruit later on. I don’t think it completely went away. Overall this was really good. The tea itself was not bitter and had a nice sweet taste to it. I am guessing this is a young raw puerh. I may have to buy some of this. This might be a tea better steeped western style because then you are getting the jackfruit more than in gongfu where it didn’t last.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 50ml gaiwan with 4.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
