This tea is very old (as I’ve said before: http://steepster.com/laze/posts/4200 ), yet maintains its flavor. Kind of crazy. And scary.
Didn’t use hot enough water for this steeping (brought it to a near boil, but took too long to get it poured over the leaves), but this is a very forgiving tea. I guess if a non-pu-erh tea can last nearly a decade, it can handle some variation in temperature, too.
Not subtle, kind of fruity, quite strong.
