From Menghai Dayi tea factory

2011 Menghai Dayi Tea & Love Carnival Ripe 357g
This ripe puerh tea is made from high quality Ecology Tea leaves from high mountains. The leaf lines of the ripe tea are elegant and stretched, yielding a brownish red color and golden hairs. It brews a bright thick red broth, as crystal as amber, and a mellow flavor with smooth taste and aged aroma.

Reviewing this tonight as the Chairman has a week off. I broke out 10 grams of this to start with. I impressed myself as the first piece weighed in a 10 grams off the bat. My measuring and judgement on weight is getting better.
I gave this a 20 second wash and have let it sit for about 20 minutes to open up a bit.
First steep 10 seconds.
Color almost Lipton like dark.
Aroma, a little left of the fermented type.
Taste, some wood, a little raisin and almost prune or date in there. Nice and warming on a cold rainy night. I have been on a lot of sheng lately and this is a decent change of pace. probably not as deeply fermented as some to allow it to progress, but with the light fermentation it should progress nicely.

Flavors: Dates, Raisins, Wood

20 minutes? I usually give it a raw puerh a 5 second rinse before steeping but 20 minutes is more than I expected. Do you only do the 20 minutes for ripe puerh? Any advice to how I should my puerh to get the most out of it, based on your experience? Thanks.

(should steep my puerh) yes, I’m clumsy at typing at times.

Oh not a 20 minute wash . I just wash it and pour out the first steep/wash and then I leave it in the dry pot to allow the residual steam and moisture to keep opening up the chunk. I guess it is like letting a piece of grilled meat. Always let it rest before cutting. Same idea with the tea. Soak it in the pot and dump it and rest it before the first real brew.

I rest it a little too if it is a chunk, otherwise the first brew is like nothing. I also let the first brew rest a bit in my cup to get the heat dissipated a bit so my first sip tastes like something instead of a blast of boil.

I appreciate the comments. I will have to keep in mind the part about letting the tea leaves rest after being rinsed; I also appreciate that you both gave reasons why you do it.
