Bought this a few weeks ago and am just getting around to trying it. This is a bitter tasting tea that also has a somewhat interesting taste to it. It was also somewhat sour initially. The bitterness is certainly the dominant factor. I only gave this three steeps. Both because that’s all I could handle and this is a caffeinated herbal and I am at my caffeine limit. In the end this is not a tea I can recommend to others, or for that matter not recommend. It is interesting to have tried it. I had tried it before a couple of years ago. This makes a bitter sheng puerh seem sweet. That is for sure. It’s bitterness is abiding. I also can’t give this a number. I don’t know what to compare it to. Some people may like this tea and it is supposed to be very good for you. I did not use very much of the tea, only 3.7g for 120ml gaiwan. I had vaguely remembered you didn’t need much of this tea. In fact I may have used too much.

I steeped this tea three times in a 120ml gaiwan with 3.7g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 20 sec, and 30 sec.

I have some, because of course I had to have some, since I’m into healing herbs and all that old hippy stuff. I’ve attempted to drink it a few times now, only using one ‘needle’, and very short time, and sadly, it is undrinkable for me.

AllanK

It’s pretty much undrinkable I agree with you.

The “Bitter Nail” as it is called. I think it is actually part of the Evergreen family of trees.

Tried some kuding from a chinese supermarket. Tasted like nail polish remover. No complexity, no nothing – just nail polish remover.

It’s supposed to be a great tonic, LOL, starting out horribly and then developing a sweet taste…

Next time I will try for more than three steeps and see if it improves.
