A bread and butter Dayi ripe. Solid little plantation cake that you can’t go wrong with.

This is an excellent tea. It is about as good as young Shou gets. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor for the first four or five steeps. After that it was gone. There was very little bitterness in this tea. I noticed a little in the third steep but not in the first two, interestingly enough. It transformed into a nice steet ripe puerh. There were some notes of chocolate in there. I think you could even say it developed a bit of a fruity taste in later steeps. This is definitely a good one to age. In ten years I can only imagine what this will taste like. It’s really good now.

I steeped this twelve times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.4g 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. I think I could have gotten another four or five steeps out of this one if I wanted to continue.
