This review is based on one steep western style. It is a nice sweet tasting, somewhat earthy ripe puerh. It is from 2008 so it has cleared somewhat. I might even go as far as to describe the sweet note as a dates note. It is pretty tasty. I should add that Tea Trekker sells some good tea.

I brewed this one time in a Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 200 degree water for 30 seconds after a 10 second rinse.

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.
