This tea is good but not for the feint of heart. This tea was a sort of ripe that had clearly been heavily fermented. The fermentation taste was evident into the sixth steep and you could still taste it in the eighth steep. I was too busy noticing the fermentation in this one to really notice other notes. Not really sure if I would say this one had notes of chocolate in there. It was enjoyable, just heavily fermented. It did have a sweet taste in there. There were really no bitter notes that I noticed. Also wouldn’t have noticed them past the fermentation.
I steeped this tea ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10.2g leaves and boiling water. I gave them a 10 second rinse. I steeped them for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. This one is still available on the us site but is sold out on the China site.
