There was nothing especially bad about this tea. There was nothing especially great about it either. It was a fairly average but tasty ripe puerh. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor that lasted four or five steeps. That flavor was a little bit unpleasant but I wouldn’t use the word fishy. A five pack of these bricks was very cheap so I wasn’t expecting too much. It had little bitterness and developed a sweet taste over the steeps.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 160ml Solid Silver Teapot with 15g 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, and 1 minute.
