This shou is nicely fruity, without any bitter or dry notes. I did get the chocolately notes, along with some fruity dates. There is some sourness in the first 5 steeps, but once you get passed that the shou is quite nice. I would buy this one to drink later, it needs some time to lose that ferment essence.

When there is sourness it needs to air out more. I recently had sour shou that completely went away after 2-3 wks

Crimson Lotus Tea

We even left this one to air out for half a year in our storage before posting it to the site. It’ll do well in the next couple of years.

This is a fairly tasty ripe puerh. It has a fair amount of fermentation flavor to it. According to Crimson Lotus this is a mix of new 2014 material and older presumably 2012 material. It definitely needs to age a bit. It was sweet from the start with very little bitterness. Crimson Lotus says this is Gushu material. I have no way to confirm this and can only take them at their word. I’m not sure if I would say notes of chocolate or not, perhaps I was not paying attention. It did develop a bit of a fruity taste in later steeps. The fermentation taste was a factor for an average of four or so steeps. Overall I liked this tea.

I steeped this tea ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 11g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min. Judging by the color of the tea in the tenth steep I’d say this would go a few more steeps at least.
