Bought a 100g sample of this with my last Streetshop88 order. This is excellent tea. It was a little weak in the first two infusions. But that was my fault for not breaking up the cake. It is a very densely packed tea. It was sweet and smooth from the beginning, with almost no bitterness. I didn’t notice much in the way of changes in the tea in the first four infusions. Oddly enough, it seemed to get a little more bitter in later steeps. There were in the end some nice changes in this tea. I am going to have to order a whole bing of this tea as I is worth it. I only gave it eight steeps as I was already past my caffeine limit. Judging by the taste of steep eight I would say this tea could easily go fifteen steeps but that is just a guess. One negative thing about this tea was I couldn’t discern the sweet notes as specific notes, maybe that was me. Couldn’t quite call them stonefruits but maybe.
I steeped this eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10.2g leaf and 200 degree water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 45 sec.
