83

I have this right between the two Yunan/Hunan golden teas I have rated because this tastes far more like a golden needle than a pu-erh. I suspect this is because the aging time is very short.

I really like this tea, and the heart shaped packs are very cute. Just don’t expect it to taste much like a truly aged, fermented pu-erh.

PS: THANK YOU to Chi of Tea for the free samples of this and a few other teas!

Do you break apart the heart (since it says it will make a few cups) or is it just that you can resteep it for several cups?

Jim Marks

No, we just made a small pot with the whole thing and then re-steeped it a few times.

I almost never make tea one cup at a time.

Kristin

Ah. That makes sense.

Hence my notoriously bizarre Pyrex™ steeping method.
