This is a very nice tea made, it is said , from higher grade materiel than shou is usually made from. It had a nice flavor from the start with a moderate amount of fermentation flavor left. It had notes of what you could call bittersweet dark chocolate. I had ordered a sample of this with my last order. Now I have ordered a bing. It is too bad this is not a 357g cake but that is the only thing I don’t like about this.
I steeped this ten times in a 160ml Jian Shui Teapot with 12g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 minute.
Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Earth, Sweet
