This is a very nice ripe tea with a moderate amount of fermentation flavor. It has cleared somewhat. The earthy taste was neither unpleasant or fishy but more of a sweet taste. I couldn’t sleep so I decided to male tea and really not sleep.I want to call the flavor at the end of this teas twelve steeps dates but not quite. It was enjoyable overall even if I was concentrating of photographing my tea rather than drinking it. Hopefully I will get some nice prints of the gaiwan I used tonight.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 200ml gaiwan 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, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 minutes.
Flavors: Earth, Sweet
