This is a very tasty tea. I was surprised when I had to enter it into the data base. There was a Four Leaves Ripe but the picture clearly shows a 357g bing, this is the loose leaf. Either Mandala used to sell a bing or someone put it into the database with the wrong picture. Rather than change the picture, I entered this back into the database, right or wrong. This is without a doubt one of the best ripe loose puerhs I have drank. It is sweet, I would call the main note a dates note. The fermentation flavor is very mild. It would make a good first puerh for someone not used to ripe puerh.
I brewed this twice in an 18oz teapot with 6.1g leaf and boiling water. I brewed it for 30 sec, and 30 sec. I put the second steeping in a thermos and will bring it to work with me. My companies religious affiliation is the worship of the almighty dollar and holidays and employee safety are considered second rate concerns at best. Luckily there is almost no dangerous machinery where I work or the employees would be in trouble. We are now open on Christmas too, that should be illegal.
