Thank You Marcus Reed for this sample. This was quite good. It had a light roast profile. The charcoal roast flavor was not overpowering. By the fourth steep I noticed I couldn’t taste it anymore. I am kind of at a loss as to how to describe the main flavor note of this tea, but it was good. This is a fairly recent harvest, I think Spring 2015 but I am not sure. this is one I would consider buying even though I am not as big a yancha fan as a puerh fan.

I brewed this twelve times in a 50ml gaiwan with 3.1g 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, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. Judging by the color of the tea in the final steep I’d say these leaves would go three or four more steeps but I’ve had enough at twelve.

Flavors: Roasted

Boiling 3 g 2 OZ / 50 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.
