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.
