This is a tea I have mixed feelings about. It had a poor start but a decent finish. It had a fair amount of fermentation flavor. This flavor was initially quite unpleasant. It lasted about four steeps or so. The tea also had a bittersweet character to it. This evolved into a sweet taste over ten steeps. I don’t think I would call this one chocolaty, or really fruit flavored but it was good in steep ten.
I steeped this ten times in a 160ml teapot with 13.1g 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.
