Got this one out of the Puerh TTB. The dry leaf had a slightly fruity aroma. After a rinse, it was more vegetal.

The first three steeps were mostly vegetal in character, with a bit of sweetness, some bitterness, and a bit of a funky taste in the finish. These steeps reminded me a lot of zucchini.

By the fourth steep, I wasn’t getting any more of whatever the funky note I was tasting was. At that point, the tea just became a nice and pleasantly thick vegetal tea with some sweetness and, at times, a pleasant bitterness. The aftertaste was neither particularly strong nor lingering. The texture was good and thick, could possibly be described as oily. This went on through steep #11.

The tea started dying around steep 12, with the flavor getting weaker and a little bit odd. I took it two more steeps before cutting it off – it may have had a bit more to give, but I didn’t want it anymore.

This tea was alright – it didn’t convince me to sign up for the Jalam Teaclub or anything, but didn’t convince me never to do so either.

Puerh Tea TTB. This is a fairly nice and slightly bitter sheng. It did not have an abiding bitterness that some sheng has. It developed a sweet note but I am not sure if I would call it apricots. It was pretty good. The leaves looked like good quality leaves from what little I can tell from appearance.

I steeped this eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7g 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, and 30 sec.

Flavors: Bitter, Sweet

Happy Christmas fellow steepers! Enjoying a nice pu this holiday afternoon. This is a wonderful tea from Jalam’s December tea club. It is from a region described as being “off the grid” in the Menghai area. It brews a copper color, with no bitterness at all in early steeps. It is acidic like young pu erhs are. Bitterness starts to come through in later steepings. It is buttery and delicate, full flavored if not simple. Very high quality as all Jalam teas are in my experience.
