This is a nice ripe that was bittersweet at the start with the bitter being stronger than the sweet. There was a fair amount of fermentation flavor to it that lasted four or five steeps. The fermentation flavor was a little unpleasant but not fishy. This tea gradually turned into a nice sweet ripe puerh. In the end it developed a distinct fruity note although I am not sure if I could pin it down to a specific fruit. This was a highly enjoyable puerh tea.

I steeped this twelve times in a 150ml teapot with 13.7g 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, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 minutes. I would say there were two to three steeps left to the tea. But twelve was enough.

Flavors: Earth, Fruity, Sweet

Boiling 13 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.
