1758 tasting notes

Thank you Liquid Proust for making this aged oolong sampler happen. This is an interesting tea. It has I would say a medium to medium strong roast. It was roasty until at least the fifth steep. I gave this tea eight steeps and it is a little too roasty for me. Although it did get noticeably better in the seventh and eighth steep. I’m not sure how to describe the notes that developed after the roast flavor went away but it did get noticeably smoother. I used the entire sample of 6.7g in a gaiwan around 120ml or so.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 6.7g 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. I stopped at eight steeps because I have hada a large amount of tea today and I am at my caffeine limit anyway.

Flavors: Roasted

Boiling 6 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.
