Thank you Sarsonator for this sample. This tea was good. There was s slight bitterness in the early steeps and a slight sweetness. It was smooth throughout most of the steeps. I noticed a small, very small amount of sourness in the early steeps but then I was drinking it without sugar. Normally, a small amount of sugar will override such flavors. I did not notice a strong Qi in this one but it had a mild effect on me. There were a variety of flavor notes to this tea but I was not paying attention to the specifics.

I steeped this six times in a 150ml Gaiwan with 5.7g leaf and 200 degree water. I steeped it for 15 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, and 2 min. There were more steeps to this tea but I am watching my caffeine tonight.

200 °F / 93 °C 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 5 OZ / 150 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.
