Bought this last week at Puerh Brooklyn and it was quite good. No picture because they do not have it on their website. Initial notes were sweet with grass, apricot, and stonefruits the main flavors. It got sweeter as I resteeped it. This was nnot cheap but I think was worth the price.
I steeped this ten times in a 75ml teapot with 6.5g leaf and 190 degree 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, and 1 minute.
This is a very good ripe that Puerh Brooklyn doesn’t yet list on their website. It was quite expensive. For the price I paid I was expecting phenomenal. This tea was really, really good but I will have to drink it again before I decide it was phenomenal. There was a fair amount of fermentation taste to the early steeps, not unpleasant or fishy. There were some notes of dark chocolate in there too. As I resteeped this tea over and over again, eventually steeping it 16 times it got sweeter and sweeter, developing a fruity note. I really can’t pin it down to a specific fruit but it did improve dramatically. I gave it more than my customary twelve steeps because it was so expensive. Even after 16 steeps I think I could have gotten another 2 steeps out of the leaves. It had gotten weaker by the 16th steep but not so weak that the leaves were dead. Overall this was a very, very good tea.
I steeped this tea sixteen times in a 160ml solid silver teapot with 12.2g 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, 2 min, 2.5 min, 3 min, 3.5 min, and 4 minutes.
