Another hiccup from Steepster to review this tea. Steepster automatically logged me out ands asked for my password which I do not remember. So I went to another page where I was logged in and brought up this tea. This is one I bought and finished before I was brewing gongfu and before I was on Steepster basically.
This tea is very nice. I was not paying attention to the specifics but it had a sweet note from the beginning with little bitterness. It had some fermentation flavor but not a lot. When I saw Puerhshop had restocked on this tea I bought another. I think Yunnan Sourcing used to sell this tea too but called it the Haiwan Peerless. I still have some of that.
I steeped this twelve times in a 160ml solid silver teapot with 14.3g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 minutes. Could have gotten a few more steeps out of it but I had had enough at twelve steeps from a 160ml teapot.

This is a very expensive shou from Puerhshop. I considered buying this for about two years before actually doing so. This is a sweet shou with a fair amount of fermentation flavor and very little bitterness. The fermentation taste was not of the unpleasant sort. There are some very nice notes to this tea, perhaps dates is a good estimate of the flavor. It didn’t seem chocolaty but I really didn’t drink that much of it. I did brew eight steeps but in a 50ml gaiwan. It really does have a nice flavor to it.
I steeped this tea eight times in a 50ml gaiwan with 3.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. The leaves were not done but I decided that eight steeps was already too much caffeine.
