Another hiccup from Steepster to review this tea. Steepster automatically logged me out ands asked for my password which I do not remember. So I went to another page where I was logged in and brought up this tea. This is one I bought and finished before I was brewing gongfu and before I was on Steepster basically.

This tea is very nice. I was not paying attention to the specifics but it had a sweet note from the beginning with little bitterness. It had some fermentation flavor but not a lot. When I saw Puerhshop had restocked on this tea I bought another. I think Yunnan Sourcing used to sell this tea too but called it the Haiwan Peerless. I still have some of that.

I steeped this twelve times in a 160ml solid silver teapot with 14.3g 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 minutes. Could have gotten a few more steeps out of it but I had had enough at twelve steeps from a 160ml teapot.

Flavors: Earth, Sweet

Boiling 14 g 5 OZ / 160 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.
