This is a fairly nice tea with a bittersweet start. There were some notes of mushroom and woodsy notes in the first few steeps. This slowly turned sweeter, with a bit of a fruity tang by the eighth steep. Not bad at all when you consider the price, $28 for three 250g mushroom tuos. I did not notice too much in the way of fermentation flavor to this one although that is not to say it has cleared.

I brewed this eight times in a 160ml Jian Shui teapot with 13g leaf. 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 sec.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Earth, Mushrooms, Sweet

Boiling 13 g 5 OZ / 160 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.
