This is another nice tea from Moylor. While it is not in any way spectacular it tastes far better than the cost would suggest. It was a little bittersweet at first with a moderate amount of fermentation flavor. Initially a light amber color to the tea which got darker and thicker as I resteeped it. For the price it is very good, I think I paid around $13 or so for this one. Someone had speculated that it probably isn’t from 2003 but about that I have no way to know. I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to restock this tea but I will certainly drink it again.

I steeped this tea eight times in a 180ml Yixing Teapot with 12.5g 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, and 30 sec. The last couple of steepings were for my tea photography but I drank them cold after I was done taking pictures.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Earth

Boiling 12 g 6 OZ / 180 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.
