drank 2000 Chocolate Mini Shu by White2Tea
1758 tasting notes

I have been wanting to try this tea for a while. Picked it up with my Black Friday order to White2Tea. Just now getting around to trying it. It is not bad. The aged flavor is strong. I was going to describe the aged flavor as a bamboo taste but I think the Steepster writeup has a better description, wet wood. It starts out with this note and its quite strong. By the second steep it began to dissipate and be replaced to some degreee by a sweet note, but not the sweet note of a young shou. This has a definite aged flavor throughout. By the fourth steep this note was almost gone but not quite. As I have to sleep tonight I only gave this four steeps. To be honest I didn’t like it enough to steep it more anyway. This tea was definitely worth trying. I just didn’t like it as much as I had hoped.

I steeped this tea four times in a 220ml gaiwan with 9.3g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, and 20 sec. This was a very strong tea and I could have gotten a lot more out of it, probably eight more steeps.

I think this tea calls for at least two rinses. I only rinsed it once.

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.
