This is a fairly nice raw with a bit more age on it than I expected. The tea liquid was a solid orange color and it had some decidedly aged notes to it, leather and tobacco for the first six steeps. It gradually evolved into something sweeter. I am not really sure what to call the sweet note but chestnuts came to mind. That however may not be an accurate description, just what came to mind. I steeped it for twelve steeps and it would have gone a few more had I the desire to keep going. This was a good tea but not a spectacular tea.
I steeped this twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 9.4g 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.
