First Steep – 1 minute

Mahogany in colour with a smoky, musky yet sweet wooden aroma. Flavour is very smoky and rich like velvet with notes of wood, clay, damp earth, musk and sweet straw. The smoke is definitely the most dominant factor in terms of scent and flavour.

Second Steep – 1 minute

Flavour is still very smoky but the sweetness has also increased. Still of medium strength overall and the wood, clay, damp earth and musk are still present.

Third Steep – 2 minutes

A little darker in colour now and it resembles soy sauce. The smoke is still dominant but the sweetness is toned down from the previous steep. Now the second dominant flavour is the damp earth and it remains very rich and also a little dry.

Fourth Steep – 2 minutes 30 seconds

Holding it’s flavour nicely so far, remaining heavily smoky, damply earthen and rich. The sweetness however is almost now non existent and the after taste is becoming increasingly dry.

Fifth Steep – 3 minutes 30 seconds

This is still holding up very nicely, rich and strongly smoky but the sweetness, clay and damp earth have been lightened quite drastically. The musk and dryness remains at equal strength which gives the Pu Erh enough flavour to be pleasant.

Sixth Steep – 4 Minutes

Much lighter in colour now than the third steep. The flavour is very mild now even in comparison to the previous steep. The smoke is still present but toned down from what it initially was and any other flavours are hard to detect.

Seventh Steep – 5 minutes

Extremely mild with subtle hints of smoke and wood. There is also a slight sour astringency which was not present with any previous steep.
