Got one of these as part of Dark Matter 2016! Seems to brew better with a pretty high amount of tea. Got better results with 5.5g than with 4g in my 60mL gaiwan, but I still have to try something more in the middle of those numbers.

For the 5.5g session, I tasted a lot of wetness in the early steeps, which went away, at least on the front of the sip, around steep 4 or so. After that I got a few creamy, sweet, woody steeps with a kind of wet mossy aftertaste. Around steep 8, the aftertaste started getting a bit too funky/weird for me so I called it. I seem to be finding myself less a fan of ripe puerh lately, but I did enjoy this session at least to some degree.

Flavors: Creamy, Sweet, Wet Moss, Wet Wood

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 2 OZ / 60 ML

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 ;)
