First few steeps have pretty heavy chocolatey flavor. I actually prefer to do a wash with this tea, as the first steep can be a little intense. There are floral undertones to the chocolate flavor which take the prominent position after about the 4th or 5th steeping. A pleasant (though threatens to be too intense in early steeps) astringency (not tannic) pervades through all but the last few steepings. I can get a solid 8 steepings out of this, and and 10 if I really feel like it.

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
