This is a tasty ripe with a fair amount of fermentation flavor left. It began to clear around the fourth steep. It was sweet in nature throughout these steeps but got somewhat fruity in later steeps. This is a good and inexpensive tea from Berylleb King Tea on EBay. They just call it Yunnan Old Comrade but I believe it is a Haiwan Tea Factory production.

I steeped this eight times in a 180ml teapot with 12.8g 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. I think if I had wanted to continue past eight steeps I would have gotten another six or so steeps out of the tea.

Flavors: Earth, Fruity, Sweet

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 12 g 6 OZ / 180 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.
