This tea is surprisingly good considering what I paid for it. One of the other reviewers said it had a buttery texture and I would agree. It was sweet with little bitterness and a fair amount of fermentation flavor. But that flavor was neither unpleasant or fishy. This was one good tea overall. I steeped it fourteen times in a 120ml shibo and think it would have gone a few more.

I steeped this tea fourteen times in a 120ml shibo with 10.2g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, 2 min, 2.5 min, and 3 minutes. There were maybe two to three more steeps left to this one.

The one has the distinct taste of Menghai Shou puerh and is one of the smoothest puerhs that I have encountered in some time. If you are also one that fondly remembers the older style shou which was often described along the lines of smooth, creamy or silky when brewed thicker, this is a fine sample of what is sadly becoming harder to find as time goes on. So I am very thankful that Jim of Puerh Shop has produced this for his shop.
