This is a reasonably nice ripe tea that is sweet from the ripe puerh and smoky from the tangerine peel. Not sure if they smoke the thing with the puerh inside or not. There was a fair amount of fermentation taste that was neither unpleasant or fishy. Because of the nature of the tangerine it was hard to tell where the fermentation taste began and the smoky taste ended. I only gave this eight steeps today but it would have gone quite a few more.
I brewed this eight times in a 150ml gaiwan with 10.1g 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, and 30 seconds. If you have never tried Tangerine Puerh I definitely recommend you get some from your favorite seller and try it. I have not found one brand that is better than another but this was quite tasty.
