I love this tea. It is a great value whether from Puerhshop or Dragon Tea House. It has very little fermentation flavor left. It has very little earthiness at all. It has a lot of sweet flavor, including chocolate notes. My tea today also had orange notes, but that’s because I added 4g of tangerine peel to the gaiwan. This added a nice flavorful, sweet dimension to the tea. This is not a smoked tangerine peel like in tangerine puerh.
I brewed this seven times in a 220ml Gaiwan with 9.2g leaf and 4g tangerine peel in boiling water. I brewed it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, and 2 min. There were three to five steeps left had I wanted to continue. IT weakened somewhat by the seventh steep. The chocolate notes got more pronounced in the latter steeps.
