Thank You Angel at Teavivre for this free sample. This is a very tasty, good quality ripe puerh. It has lost most but not quite all of its fermentation flavor. All but the most sensitive to fermentation flavor would be fine with this tea. There were some sweet notes to this tea. The Steepster writeup describes them as caramel. This is certainly a possible viewpoint but I could not pin them down while drinking it. This was a great way to start my day with a rare morning gongfu session.
I steeped this six times in a 220ml gaiwan with 6.7g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 1 min. I would say that I would only have gotten a few more steepes out of this tea but then again I probably should have used more tea but wanted to save my second sample of this tea for another time.
