Gmathis wrote a note for this one recently and I remembered I had a teabag floating around here, so I thought I’d find it. That teabag is from TreeGal (a while ago)! Thank you! An odd shaped teabag and really, there doesn’t seem to be as much leaf here as I would want to steep up for a ripe puerh… I would probably use three times this amount. So of course this is a very light colored cup for me, though honestly I steeped it lightly too. Another starchy cup. Nothing bad but too light for me. Even the second steep, when I went full tilt and steeped for twenty minutes. The resulting flavor was still not very dark, but points for this being a puerh teabag without any offensive puerh characteristics. But if I want to steep up a puerh, I want it dark!
Steep #1 // 22 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 20 minute steep
