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.

Boiling 8 g 3 OZ / 100 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.
