This tea is quite good. I received this as an extra from Mr Mopar’s Puerh sale. Thanks, it is good. I gave this tea ten steeps. It had a moderate amount of fermentation flavor in the early steeps that began to go away around steep four or five. It was sweet with little bitterness throughout. This is exactly what shou is supposed to taste like in my opinion.

I steeped this ten times in a 170ml teapot with 10g leaf and boiling water. I gave it aq 10 second rinse then let the leaves rest for ten minutes. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.

Boiling 0 min, 15 sec 10 g 6 OZ / 170 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.
