This tea came to me in one of the 30 gram boxes which I think are intended for retail use. There was no date on the packaging telling me its age, but as the same product marked 2014 is available on Misty Peak’s website I assume it’s of the same vintage.

The leaf both dry and wet carries the scent of raisins or figs, and the big intact leaves and stems are aestheticly pleasing.

The soup is thick and syrupy, leaving a strong honey aroma in whatever holds it, even long after the liquid is gone.

The taste is well balanced between sweet and sour, not unlike one of my favorite green teas, a Mao Jain from Oregon Coffee and Tea in Corvallis, Oregon. The flavor throughout my sessions is fruity, reminding me of dried apple slices. I especially noticed this when bowl brewing only a few leaves. This is one tea that will go a long time before giving up, it was a challenge almost to see the leaves to the end.

The tea is drying to the palate and gives me a very blissful energy that I savor every time I come to it.

I feel like this would be a fantastic sheng to introduce my friends to, as it really does rise to the occasion, giving and giving until you just can’t drink any more.

Decided to drink this today. The leaves even look tasty with this puerh. There are a variety of notes to this tea. There is a barely perceptible bitterness to it. There are sweet notes to this tea, the traditional descriptions of apricots and stonefruits apply. After thirteen steeps I am feeling an effect from this tea, I am feeling its qi I guess. I’m not quite teadrunk but I feel the effect of this tea. I suppose I could be feeling the caffeine but I think it is the qi. The reason I was able to give it thirteen steeps in one session is I recently bought a very small gaiwan from Dragon Tea House. They rate it at 50ml, I have been told it is 60ml. I have not gotten around to measuring it yet but I assume it is 60ml. There is a strong aftertaste to this tea. I can taste it even in between sips. No doubt I will be tasting this tea long after I have finished my cup. I don’t know if I would rate the loose Misty Peaks tea as better or worse than their puerh cakes of which I have several. This is definitely among the very best raw puerh. I don’t even think it is considered gushu but I could be wrong.

I steeped this tea thirteen times in a 60ml gaiwan with 3.7g leaf and 200 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I don’t know if ten minutes is enough time for the leaves to open up but it’s all I had patience for. 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, 2 min and 2.5 min. I expect that this tea would make it to twenty steeps but I am at my caffeine limit. I might save the leaves for tomorrow, we’ll see.
