Bought this in a recent order from Dragon Tea House and it is pretty good. Either it had partially cleared or the fermentation on this was very light. It had some fermentation taste but not a lot. There was no bitterness and a nice sweet note developed. A slightly sweet note with just a hint of a bitter aftertaste, making me think of bitter melon even though I admit I have never eaten that fruit but it is as I imagine that would taste. The was very good overall.

I steeped this twelve times in a 130ml teapot with 10g of leaves 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 minutes. The leaves were not done. There were a few more steeps in them not sure how many.

Boiling 10 g 4 OZ / 130 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.
