This was a very tasty ripe tea by Puerhshop. It started out with a sweet note and no real bitterness. It did have a fair amount of fermentation flavor but that flavor was not the unpleasant sort and it certainly was not fishy. It was dark and rich in the early steeps. By the twelfth steep it had thinned out a bit but there was still a nice color to it. I suspect I would have gotten between two and four more steeps out of it. It was very good but not spectacular.
I brewed this in a 150ml gaiwan with 11g 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 minutes.
