Thank you Angel for this sample. I enjoyed this tea. I thought it was good. I also have reason to beleive my taste buds are a little off lately. Luckily, I have enough sample left for at least one more gongfu session. This tea was slightly sweet and had a very, very slight bitterness. It also had a slight sourness, very slight. But I believe that the sourness may have been my taste buds, because all puerh tea has been tasting slightly sour to me lately. So I do not take that into consideration unless the taste reappears when I sample this again. While I did notice some complex notes in this tea I did not pin them down as specific things. There was a certain amount of fermentation flavor that disappeared by the fifth steeping, but not too much.

I brewed this 6 times in a 220ml gaiwan with boiling water and 9.6g leaf. I steeped it for 15 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, and 2 min.

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 9 g 7 OZ / 220 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
