Thank you Mr Mopar for this sample. Overall, this tea was quite good, but not spectacular. It had a nice depth of flavor but was not as good as the best Menghai Tea Factory teas. It was up there in quality though and I might buy it when I eventually put in an order with Crimson Lotus Tea. That being said there were some sweet notes and some chocolate notes to this tea. There was no off flavor or noticeable bitterness or astringency.

I brewed this five times in a 220ml gaiwan over several hours. I used 8.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it one short rinse. I steeped it for 15 sec, 15 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, and 30 sec. It held its strength well and would have taken at least 4 more steepings but I have to be up tomorrow and don’t want the caffeine.

Flavors: Chocolate, Sweet

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 8 g 7 OZ / 220 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
