This is a very nice aged shou with a little fermentation taste left to it but not much. There was a weak wet storage note that lasted a few steeps. There was a sweet note from the beginning that seemed like a dates note to me. This was quite a good tea.
I brewed this ten times in a 160ml silver teapot with 12.2g 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, and 1 min.
Flavors: Dates, Earth, Sweet
