This tea is good. The only problem I had with this tea was I was using a new teapot that was supposed to be 100ml. The teapot turned out to be bigger, probably closer to 140ml. What would have been a good amount of tea for 100ml was not enough for 140ml. Still, the tea was good. It had a nice color to it. This was no yellow sheng but had a nice orange color to it. There was a fair amount of bitterness in the early steeps but not a young sheng bitterness if you know what I mean. It dramatically mellowed out over eight steeps. The next time I make this tea I will use more tea. The tea had a nice aged flavor to it, I’m not sure how to describe the specific notes but it was good. This is not a cheap tea. I think it goes for $30 for a tuo but it is worth the price.
I steeped this tea eight times in a 140ml teapot with 5g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and let the leaves rest for about ten minutes. I steeped the tea for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. Had the teapot been the size listed in the description I think this would have worked out just about right.
