This tea is excellent, not as good as something like the 2008 Song of Chi Tse, but excellent none the less. It is a step below a top Menghai Tea Factory production but is quite good. It had a moderate amount of fermentation flavor left but not too much. There were some complex notes to it including chocolate and sweet notes like plums or dates. I added a small amount of sugar to it which I am sure added to the sweet notes but they were there none the less. Considering the price of only $18 this tea is a great value. I will see how it ages. CNNP makes an excellent puerh and this is no exception.

I brewed this 4 times in a 200ml glass teapot with 7.5g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, and 20 sec. The tea had many more steepings in it but I have to wake up tomorrow morning.

Flavors: Chocolate, Plum

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 7 g 7 OZ / 200 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
