This is a tasty, slightly bittersweet tasting ripe tea. Despite being from 2006 there is still some fermentation flavor there. Not a lot but it is noticeable in the early steeps. I am not picking up a lot of complex notes but this is a shou good to drink now. Hopefully it will improve with a couple more years of aging. Mine was obtained from Yunnan Sourcing in one of their sales.

I steeped this ten times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10.4g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. There were certainly a few more steeps to this tea but I rarely want more than ten steeps of any tea.

After this twelfth steep, I think I am going to lay these leaves to rest, permanently. It was a good tea that served me well.

Steeping at work. The filtered water cooler has an awesome heated water function that helps excellently in making tea.

Canton Tea Co’s 2006 Fu Hai 7576 is a cooked pu’erh that arrived in cake form. The dry leaves smell delectably loamy and full of forest-y scents. After rinsing the leaves, I perform the first thirty-second infusion. This first infusion impresses greatly. Quite smooth with just a tad of subtle roughness. The leaves are just beginning to release their flavors. The second thirty-second infusion loses the rough edge but remains much the same, flavor-wise.

Infusion number three, same guidelines, gains a more full body. The wood tones are rich and smooth. The fourth infusion is much the same. After eight infusions, the flavors slowly begin to give out. This tea was an amazing experience to drink. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate it a 93/100.
