Trying this one again to see if I like it as much as before. This time I used a little more leaf. There was virtually no fermentation taste to this tea and no bitterness. There was a sweet note from the start. This is not a tea that is in need of further aging as so many of the shou puerh in my collection. I gave it twelve steeps in what was supposed to be an 80ml gaiwan but I measured it and it was a 100ml gaiwan. It seems dragon tea house underestimates the capacity of their gaiwans.
I steeped this twelve times in an 100ml gaiwan with 8.7g 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. There were maybe two to four steeps left in the leaves.
