This is one I had bought a sample of a couple of years back and just recently got around to buying it. There is a smoky flavor to this tea but it is not too strong. There was some bitterness in the early steeps but not too much. It did develop a mildly sweet flavor eventually but not initially. There were no unpleasant aged flavors to this tea, the sort of negative flavors teas this old often develop. That I think is this teas strongest point.
I steeped this tea eight times in an 130ml gaiwan with 8.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec,25 sec, and 30 sec. The tea was certainly not finished but as always I was watching my caffeine intake.
