This is quite a good ripe puerh. It was somewhat bittersweet at the start. This lasted about three steeps. There was a fair amount of fermentation flavor to it. But this was neither unpleasant or fishy. I short this was a very good tea with a lot of sweet notes.
I brewed this twelve times in a 160ml Solid Silver Teapot with 14.6g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. I’d say there were perhaps four more steeps in the leaves.
