This is a very nice puerh with a lot of fermentation flavor. It tastes like it was heavily fermented. The fermentation flavor was noticeable through the sixth steep. There was a nice sweet note behind the fermentation and a bit of a bitter character early on. It developed into a nice sweet ripe puerh. I am thinking more the taste of mushrooms rather than fruity but it was good. And there were some notes of dark chocolate in the early steeps.

I steeped this twelve times in a 150ml gaiwan with 12.7g 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 minutes. It was not done at twelve. There were a few more steeps left if I wanted to continue.

Boiling 12 g 5 OZ / 150 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.
