10 Tasting Notes

A little more heavily roasted than the other Da Hong Pao’s I’ve tried, but very good. I’ve gotten the best results steeping this for shorter times (2-2.5 min) at 185 for 3-4 infusions.
Steeping longer makes for a much darker and richer brew, but I find it a little overpowering.

Still enjoying these. I brew at 195 for about 1min adding 20-30 sec for each consecutive steep. I usually get about 5 cups.
My favorite thing is that they are pre-sized, so i just drop it in the infuser and go, no breaking / measuring, etc…

I really like this tea, It’s got a nice pu-erh flavor, but not as strong as the aged.
I can usually get 4 steepings out of it, though I’ve found that extending the traditional steeping times by 20 -30 sec makes a big difference. I also brew the first two cups at 185, and the second two at 195, it seems to help get a little more out of the later steeps, which unlike the longer aged pu-erh can get a little thin. I don’t notice any of the typical bitterness of the green pu-erh, and rather enjoy this one as it is.

Very good.. Great Pu-erh flavor with an infusion of orange from being fermented inside. Smells kind of like tang before it’s steeped, but the brewed flavor is very good.

Nice almost floral aroma almost reminiscent of a first flush Darjeeling. Rich honey flavor very smooth. I like this tea a lot.
Steeped at 195 until leaves began to sink. I bought this bulk from Central Market for around $110 / lb

First Pu-erh I’ve tried, so I can’t compare it to others, but It is very good.
Nice smooth woody flavor and convienent single cup balls.
I got this in bulk from Central Market, distributed by republic of tea, but I can’t find mention of it on their website. $110 / lb.
First steep 200 deg for 2 min.

Incredibly awful, at least it was hot, reminiscent of hot cough syrup. Very strong flavor was a little much for me.
On the plus side, it is a really cool color. Perhaps it would be better iced.

Nice oolong with good flavor that develops over several steepings. Very clean finish, and smooth taste. I buy this bulk from Central Market.

Great tea, nice jasmine flavor not to strong, really good iced. I get two good steepings out of it at 3 min at 175 and 4 for the second. Third steeping is a little thin even at higher temp or longer steep time.

Nice flavor, great hot or over ice. Taste is similar to a mild Longjing and makes a great everyday tea. I buy it in bulk at Central Market and always keep some on hand.
