Having a bit more success as I fiddle around with ratios. Tried using ~10g, but with my 100mL gaiwan, the leaves just didn’t have enough room and it was nasty. The best seems to be about 7g. Get some odd flavors off of it…kinda reminding me of leather, and some light smokiness. I don’t find the texture particularly enjoyable, as it leans more towards chalkiness. Some very brief sweet notes, only in the early steeps. Not awful, but a cheap tea which tastes like one. Oh, it was pretty nasty grandpa style too…smelled/tasted unfortunately a bit like woody sewage :/

Flavors: Leather, Smoke, Sweet, Wood

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
