Not a bad tea, though I didn’t find it too interesting. Kind of thick, muted flavor, not very noteworthy.

Bought this a few weeks ago from Puerhshop. This is an excellent tea. It was cheap too, only $8 for a 100g bing. This was slightly bittersweet at the start with a fair amount of fermentation flavor. The fermentation flavor was not of the unpleasant or fishy sort. It had clearly been properly fermented. I find that Puerhshop productions are usually good tea. They are not always spectacular but are good. This one was nice and sweet after a few steeps and not horribly bitter before that. There were some complex notes in there but I wasn’t really paying to close attention. I was just enjoying this tea. This is one for which I give Puerhshop high marks on.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 150ml teapot with 11g 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, 445 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. The leaves weren’t done at twelve. I could have gotten a few more steeps out of them but I was at my caffeine limit for today. This is definitely one I recommend if anyone is putting in an order to Puerhshop. At $8 it is a steal. They could have priced this one at $20 and I probably wouldn’t have complained.
