This is a tasty tea. I was to be honest expecting more bitterness in the early steeps of this one but it was surprisingly smooth from the beginning. Not sure of the cha qi of this tea as it just didn’t have a strong effect on me. Gave it fourteen steeps in an 80ml Kamjove brewing vessel. I could have certainly continued as the tea leaves were not spent at fourteen. I think I would get twenty out of this tea but I am already past my caffeine limit today. I have not decided if I will save the leaves for tomorrow or not. The defining character of this tea was it’s smoothness. It was a nice sweet tea from early on with some apricoty sweetness developing in later steeps.

I steeped this tea 14 times in an 80ml Kamjove with 5.1g 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, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, 2.5 min and 3 min.

Fourteen times! I got about 17 so you are probably getting close. But still that is indeed a lot of tea for your usual. Let me know how you plan to store this, I still haven’t decided. Not sure it needs the crock or even if I want to age it or drink it up.

For the moment it is stored in a cardboard box. I may eventually take something out of my pumidor and put this in its place.

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.
