this was definitely the tastiest semi aged raw I have tried. There was a sweet note from beginning to end with just a little bitterness in the mix. There was no strong note of leather or tobacco although I could taste a feint note trying to emerge but not quite succeeding. This is one I will drink again. I only gave this eight steeps because I want to move on to something else while it is still early but this was really good and would definitely have gone twelve or fourteen steeps.

I steeped this eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

Flavors: Sweet

Boiling 9 g 5 OZ / 150 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.
