This is an interesting tea that I bought from a relatively new EBay seller. It is a reasonably good puerh tea with some hints that it was dry stored. While the tea was sweet from the start and you could even use the words apricots and stonefruits to describe it, it also had a bit of a sour note mostly in the aftertaste. I expect this means it was in dry storage. That note lasted about six steeps and was gone by the seventh. It left behind a nice sweet tea. I didn’t notice any bitterness at all but there was some astringency.

I steeped this eight times in an 80ml teapot with 6.5g 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, and 30 seconds.

Boiling 6 g 3 OZ / 80 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.
