Overall this was a good tea. It started out with weak notes of leather and tobacco. These notes were noticeable for about five steeps. Then they transformed into a very sweet note. It was a fruity note, not sure which fruit.
Now for the big question, was this a fake. If it was a fake it was a good fake. The outer ticket did not shine green under the black light. Problem is I don’t know when all Dayi tuochas got this feature. It may be they did not all get this feature until 2011 or so. I know all Dayi bings should have it by 2008.
In any case it was good tea.
I steeped this twelve times in a 120ml gaiwan with 7.9g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec , 7sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
