This tea is quite good. It has a fairly light roast profile. It has a sweetness behind the roast. I’d say the roast was noticeable for four or five steeps. It is very tasty. I brewed this eight times and am sure I could have gotten a few more steeps out of it but I was at my caffeine limit.

I brewed this eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7.1g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. The leaves really opened up during this ten minutes. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. The tea was not watery in the eighth steep. I could have gotten more out of it had I wanted more caffeine.

Flavors: Roasted, Sweet

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.
