This is excellent tea considering the price of $12. It had little bitterness even in the first steep with a sort of muted sweetness, just a very light sweet note without a bitter background note. There was some fermentation taste but I didn’t notice it all that much. A few steeps in a note that I would describe as dry grapes emerged that only lasted about two or three steeps. Then it was back to a muted sweetness. This tea was quite the find for the price. While certainly not as good as a $100 shou brick from someone like Hai Lang Hao it was incredible considering the price. This is one I would definitely buy again if I run out of it.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 207ml Taiwan Clay Teapot with 17.5g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, and 20 seconds. Going to go back and steep it a few more times for some photos.

Flavors: Earth, Sweet, White Grapes

Boiling 17 g 7 OZ / 207 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.
