Got this in the mail in my latest Yunnan Sourcing order. And it is a good one. There was a lot of fermentation flavor that lasted through about steep six. It was dark and rich in the early infusions. I’m not entirely sure if I noticed notes of chocolate but it is possible. What was there was a nice sweet taste with little bitterness. It will be interesting to see how this one ages.

I brewed this twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 12.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.

Flavors: Earth, Sweet

Boiling 12 g 5 OZ / 150 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.
