Thanks Ost for this sample via her Xmas card!
I really liked the first steep. I figured as a pu-erh this could stand being left in the water so I put it directly in my cup! (Western style steep.) I never do that anymore! How my steeping has changed! Really I’m so dependent on my gravity steeper nowadays.
Anyways, the first steep was robust and sweet and yummy. The 2nd steep though was pretty much straight through pu-erh. That can be a good thing most of the time, but in this case it came off to me as fishy, not fun. I finished the cup but didn’t rebrew.
