This is excellent but not spectacular tea. Is was sweet and thick with fermentation flavor in the first couple of steeps. It mellowed significantly over ten steeps. It was not weak even after ten steeps. I used a lot of tea so I am sure I could have gotten a few more steeps out of it. I liked this tea but I wonder if it is really ancient tree as claimed. So many teas make the claim to be something they are not.
I steeped this ten times in a 170ml teapot with 14g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, and 45 sec.
