While this tea can’t compare to Misty Peaks it is quite good overall. There is a slight bitterness in the early steeps and also a nice sweetness. There is another note, more neutral than good or bad that I couldn’t quite identify. Streetshop88 has become my favorite EBay seller lately. They have sold me some excellent tea recently. I only gave this six steeps because I am again watching my caffeine content but it would have easily gone through twelve or more.

I brewed this six times in a 120ml gaiwan with 6.2g leaf and 200 degree water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min.

200 °F / 93 °C 0 min, 15 sec 6 g 4 OZ / 120 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.
