I work for a roof, food and tea :P.

Dry Leaf – Spicy and earth scent
Wet Leaf – Earthy and sweet with spice like notes in the background.
Cup – Brews into a Bronze or darker golden color.

Gong fu style 5grams/5oz Gaiwan *

1st Steep – 2secs – Sweet and earthy scent, the earthiness reminds me of freshly cut mushrooms; it wears a earthy/musky scent. The steep tastes like a very earthy miso soup with a slight spiciness in the tongue. The aftertaste is savory.

2nd Steep – 2secs – Very sweet and earthy. It feels broth/soup like to me, it almost reminds me of a root vegetable soup back home; very filling and warming. It has a very pleasant aftertaste that is savory and just a hint of sweetness. ‘Umami’ puerh, very good.

3rd Steep – 2secs – Sweet scent with some hidden spiciness. Slightly cleaner start with earthy sweetness. This opens up to the broth/soup like umami taste. This time there is some spiciness present and then turns into a camphor freshness.

4th Steep – 2secs * – Clean and sweet steep that becomes earthy and slightly savory, the broth seems a perfect balance between sweet and savory. The aftertaste is savory and refreshing.

5th Steep – 4secs * – Sweet and earthy, the two extra seconds seems to have revived that strong earthy soup notes and some spiciness with it. This steep wears a slight astringency that might be just because of an accident with my strainer :/. Savory and refreshing aftertaste.

6th Steep – 4secs * – Sweet and spicy taste that becomes refreshing, then savory and earthy. This tea has a very good balance between savory notes and natural sweetness that is very pleasant. The aftertaste again remains savory and very refreshing.

I’ll continue this one later. It’s late, I with I didn’t have to sleep sometimes. We need to add 2 more hours to our days so we can have more ‘Me’ time.
I continued this tea in the morning. Very warming and filling with some spiciness. Amazing cake.
