I recently bought two different 7572’s from Aliexpress King Tea, this one and a 2008. The 2008 was pretty bad and I don’t recommend it. This one was pretty good. There was almost no fermentation flavor, it was 98% cleared. What fermentation flavor that was there was barely perceptible. There was a little more bitterness in the early steeps than I expect from a ripe Dayi but that disappeared after a few steeps. A nice sweet flavor was left after that. I was not really paying that much attention to the specific notes but it got somewhat fruity in the later steeps. I ended up giving it ten steeps and I’m sure it would have gone another four or so in steeps.

I steeped this ten times in a 180ml teapot with 12.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I don’t know if ten minutes was enough for the leaves to open up but I wanted my tea. I was not patient enough to wait an hour. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. Overall this was quite good tea.

Flavors: 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.
