I took this pu-erh while they offered free shipping above reasonable price and I could not resist. I think that price 4.50 USD for quite nice pack of tea.
I made first steep 15 seconds long and then each other 30 seconds.
First aroma I have noticed is cocoa which is not mentioned here at all! Then wet soil – but in pleasant way. In third steep I noticed bit mineral notes. Still bit creamy – sweet.
Colour has changed a lot – from light brown to really deep red-brown. And it looks bit oily.
Ah, I forgot one steeping in gaiwan. But it is forgiving – it is still very nice to drink. I like it very much. I have not counted number of steeps – I just really like this pu-erh; easy drinking for beginners as I am. Clearly recommended!
