I had this tea this morning. The little ball is so cute and it’s really packed tight. A bit too tight since it takes forever to break up. I gave it a couple of pokes with my pu’erh pick on the 3rd rinse just to get it going. Each ball is 7-8 grams of tea. That’s a lot of tea!

So I did 3 rinses 10/10 & 15

Then I brewed for 15 sec. It was a bit rough, really spicy/peppery and some bitterness.

4th brew – 20 sec. It was getter better. Smoother , less bitter, apricot notes were coming through. A bit less peppery.

5th brew Went back to 10 sec because this was a lot of tea for me and it was just too strong at 20 sec. The peppery/spicy note was stronger again. It started out smooth on the tongue with a slight bitterness on the finish. It had a nice silky mouth feel

6th brew-15 sec Peppery notes disappeared and it became smoother .

This tea just kept changing and getting better. I put the tea leaves aside to have some more for tomorrow. There’s definitely plenty of infusions left in those leaves. I didn’t get any orchid notes off it like they’ve mentioned on their website. Maybe that will come out in later infusions.

Flavors: Apricot, Pepper, Spicy

I’ve been working on this one since I got the shipment yesterday afternoon, and it just keeps getting better. I’m somewhere around 10ish steeps in and the little ball has only just come completely apart. My little teapot is stuffed with huge leaves and buds. Lovely to look at.
I’ll have to give it a proper review when my arms stop feeling like they’re filled with helium. I didn’t even know it was possible to get this tea drunk.
