Heavy steep: I taste/smell;

All in all a very yummy tea. Nice tastes and cha qi. I rate a 90 because there’s not enough smoke, and the metallic kick at the end was not too nice.

Many thanks to misty peak teas for this free sample.

PS: i guess this is not a good tea for my stomach. i had some burning in my lower gut after drinking this tea. i’m not deducting points or saying this tea is bad for you. i’m just saying “people, please remind me to never drink sheng younger than 3 years, thanks.”

Flavors: Cream, Green, Honey, Metallic, Smoke, Spices, Vegetables

Drinking the same shou as yesterday. This time I’m doing 6-12 steeps at increments of 10 sec per steep.
10, 20, 30 and so on. This is a fun and more enjoyable way to drink puerh. Better flavours, flavour strenght = better experience
