This tea is good but not for the feint of heart. This tea was a sort of ripe that had clearly been heavily fermented. The fermentation taste was evident into the sixth steep and you could still taste it in the eighth steep. I was too busy noticing the fermentation in this one to really notice other notes. Not really sure if I would say this one had notes of chocolate in there. It was enjoyable, just heavily fermented. It did have a sweet taste in there. There were really no bitter notes that I noticed. Also wouldn’t have noticed them past the fermentation.

I steeped this tea ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10.2g leaves and boiling water. I gave them a 10 second rinse. I steeped them for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. This one is still available on the us site but is sold out on the China site.

Flavors: Earth, Sweet

Boiling 10 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.
