Puerh Tea TTB. This is a nice example of a semi aged tea. It looks like it is no longer available from Hou De. It has aged a fair bit. It has no wet storage taste that I can discern. There is some bitterness and some sweetness to it along with a fair amount of astringency. I also detect a little bit of smoke but not much. I’m not getting much cha qi off this one. It is interesting to sample something from Hou De Fine Tea as I have never tried anything of theirs before. This qualifies as semi aged in my mind. The tea liquid has started to turn brown but is not fully amber yet.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.4g 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, anad 30 sec.

Boiling 8 g 4 OZ / 120 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.
