This tea didn’t have a name in a traditional sense so I used the description as a name to add it to the database. The name may look spam like but it is not. It is a cheap ripe sold in 100g cakes by Han Ecological Tea Group on Aliexpress. They didn’t give a year specifically either but a range of one to three years for age so I just guessed this was a 2016 tea. I only paid $7.46 each for these, now it has gone up somewhat in price. This turned out to be a nice tea. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor but that flavor was neither unpleasant or fishy. It had a sweet note from the start with virtually no bitterness. Overall it was a very nice tea. I am not sure how to characterize the sweet notes in this so I won’t try. Didn’t notice any chocolate notes but then again I wasn’t really paying attention. The taste of this tea was a pleasant surprise to say the least.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 160ml Ru Kiln Shui Ping teapot with 11g 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.
