drank 2016 "Road to Lincang" by What-Cha
1758 tasting notes

This was an excellent tea. Sampled it from the Puerh Tea TTB. It has a very clean and crisp taste. This was especially so drinking it out of my new silver teacup. It did indeed have a light fruitiness and a slight bitterness. This is one I will consider buying if I ever get around to an order from What Cha.

I gave this ten steeps in a 75ml teapot with 5.3g 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, and 1 minute. I think the tea would have gone a few more steeps if I didn’t want to move on to something else.

Boiling 5 g 3 OZ / 75 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.
