This is excellent tea if you don’t mind the flavor the tea takes from the bamboo. It has virtually not earthy flavor left. Just about all the fermentation flavor is gone from this tea. The main note of this tea however is bamboo. The other notes, sweet and a little fruity take a second fiddle to the bamboo. The bamboo flavor lasted strong until the fourth steep and then started to be replaced by sweet flavors, even berry notes. This tea is of course stored in bamboo. I think it is also roasted in bamboo but am unsure. This tea has also had a nice effect on me. While I would not use the phrase tea drunk, it has been pleasantly relaxing, not immediately but around the fifth steep.

I steeped this tea six times in a 200ml glass teapot with 8.2g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. This was not an especially strong puerh but I would say it had a least 2 to 4 more steeps in it had I wanted to continue.

This is a good tea. It is not the very best but highly enjoyable. It still has some fermentation flavor left but is maturing well. It is slightly sweet and slightly earthy. It is not bitter. I was occupied with baking a loaf of gluten free bread tonight so this did not get the full gongfu treatment it deserves. I brewed this four times in a 10 oz tea steeping mug. I used 10g of leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 15 sec, 15 sec, 15 sec, and 15 sec over several hours. This is one I would buy again per say but probably never would actually get around to it. There are so many other teas I want to try but it is worth buying again.

This tea has a lot of complex notes to it but I was not paying enough attention to discern what they were.
