This is a nice tasting ripe. It has a fair amount of fermentation flavor that I would say has begun to clear. It was a little weak but very present. It lasted maybe five steeps. I didn’t really notice any chocolate notes but I suppose I could have missed them. There was a bit of a light fruity profile towards the end of twelve steeps. It was very good.

I steeped this tea twelve times in a 110ml teapot with 9.9g 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. There were a few steeps left in the leaves.

Boiling 9 g 4 OZ / 110 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.
