Bought this recently after seeing some good reviews on it. While I’m not sure I found the notes of cherry it was somewhat chocolaty. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor and was very thick in the early steeps. I started early on this today so I wasn’t so much worrying about caffeine. I gave this tea ten steeps and I’m sure it would have gone a few more. This was an excellent and enjoyable tea for a bargain price. I don’t think that expensive teas I have bought were a level better than this as their price would suggest. This was good.

I steeped this ten times in a 180ml teapot with 10.3g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. 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 / 180 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.
