This was a very nice ripe puerh tea from Puerhshop with little bitterness and a semi sweet note from the start. This semi sweet note slowly turned into a fruity note, dates come to mind but this is just an interpretation. Someone else might call it something else.
I steeped this twelve times in a 130ml teapot with 10.1g 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. Judging by the color of the tea I would say there were another two or three steeps left to this tea.
Flavors: Dates, Earth, Sweet
