This is an excellent tea. It is about as good as young Shou gets. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor for the first four or five steeps. After that it was gone. There was very little bitterness in this tea. I noticed a little in the third steep but not in the first two, interestingly enough. It transformed into a nice steet ripe puerh. There were some notes of chocolate in there. I think you could even say it developed a bit of a fruity taste in later steeps. This is definitely a good one to age. In ten years I can only imagine what this will taste like. It’s really good now.
I steeped this twelve times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.4g 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 min. I think I could have gotten another four or five steeps out of this one if I wanted to continue.
