1758 tasting notes

Got this with the White2Tea club a couple of months back and just now tried it. It is pretty good. There was a strong but smoky orange flavor at first and the fermentatioin was not too strong. Unfortunately the orange flavor was only strong into the first four steeps. Still, it was still a nice tasting ripe after this flavor was history. There was really no bitterness to this tea.

I steeped this ten times in a 160ml Solid Silver Teapot with one whole mandarin or about 11g leaf and boiling water. I steeped this for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute. Could have gotten a few more steeps out of it but ten steeps was a lot of tea.

Flavors: Orange Zest, Smoked

Preparation
Boiling 11 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.
