this was an ok tea, not the best though

1st steep 20s: some sweetness needs longer steep (wasn’t sure if I needed to rinse it first)

2nd steep (best) 40s: tangy and sweet similar to really old puehr

3rd (final) steep 1 min: same as steep 2

when I smell the leaves dry they smell musty

when I smell the leaves wet they smell like the forest floor

I will find this tea a new home someday as I have too much to mail out atm

Flavors: Forest Floor, Sweet, Tangy

gong fu method using a gaiwan

1st steep 20s: it tastes chocolaty and peppery

2nd steep (Best) 40s: it tastes the same as above but with some bitter-sweetness this time.

3rd (Final) steep 1 min: all of the above

when i smell the tea leaves dry, i smell pepper

when i smell the tea leaves wet, i smell pepper and chocolate

overall this is an ok tea, however i think it could use a new home: anyone willing to swap?
