I have survived the tea! I drank this last night in the warrior style! About 10g/100ml ratio, but I didn’t measure weight.

Strong, punchy, pleasantly bitter. A real punch in the throat, but still enjoyable and complex. Notes of citrus and apricot, like some of my favorite shengs. Definitely one to keep around and see how it ages.

Flavors: Apricot, Bitter, Citrus

At 10 grams you are a warrior. I found this one too bitter for me at the moment and this is coming from someone that can knock down half a dozen iipas no problem. I do think that this will be really nice with some years of humid storage though

i like this tea. 6g/100ml is good enough for me. its bitter but nice, creamy.

Learning more about tea every day.

Likes: Greens, whites, oolongs, blacks, and herbals! Just depends on the mood :)
Dislikes: Coconut, melon, chocolate, peach, cherry

I also collect antique teaware (Chinese and Japanese).

I’d love to try new types, varieties, etc. I’m still exploring pu-erh to make a complete decision whether to keep trying it or just count it as a loss.

I’d love to trade with anyone who likes something that I might have! I just have to get everything added to my cupboard first :)
