This is a tea I have mixed feelings about. It had a poor start but a decent finish. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor. This flavor was initially quite unpleasant. It lasted about four steeps or so. The tea also had a bittersweet character to it. This evolved into a sweet taste over ten steeps. I don’t think I would call this one chocolaty, or really fruit flavored but it was good in steep ten.

I steeped this ten times in a 160ml teapot with 13.1g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.

Boiling 13 g 5 OZ / 160 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.
