The liquor sure is dense and black, it looks like coffee. The smell and taste is very earthy. It is very mellow and soothing to sip. It leaves a very clean aftertaste. The directions said to steep for 6-7 minutes but I never follow directions. I actually steeped for 30 seconds and discarded the liquid and then steeped for 4 minutes. I am really enjoying this tea, its making me want to try other pu-erh which is a good thing. I’m not sure how many times I can steep this but I’m going to find out. Excellent tea.

Second steep is going great. There is plenty of earthy taste and aroma still left in this tea. Tea is still dense and black.

Third steep is just as earthy and tasty as the second. Time to stop now. three is enough.

Dan, I have to thank you for saving me time and money — you’ve been trying so many kinds of tea that are on my to-sample list (Himalayan, Java, Pu-Erh, etc.)! You’re giving me a good sense of which ones might capture my fancy and which I can safely pass by.
