Still steeping this Pu-erh. I actually took a short break from it while eating dinner, and now I have returned to it with my final two infusions (infusions five and six). I know that these leaves could easily submit at least two more, and as delightful as this Pu-erh has been, I think I am ready to move on.
The fifth and six infusions are even sweeter than the first four. Sweeter, lighter on the floral notes (but they are still present), and the vegetative note has mellowed to a very smooth tasting steamed vegetable taste. There is less buttery feel and taste, although it is still uncommonly smooth. I think it is even more smooth now than at the start of the journey with this tea.
A truly remarkable Pu-erh, this Artisan Revival. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys tea!
