I bought this tea cake from Andrew (Liquid Proust) for a very fair price. That being said, I can now see why it was a cheaper cake. I used 8 grams in a 100ml gaiwan and after about 5 or 6 steeps came to the conclusion that this is just a weaker black tea. I couldn’t quite coax much of a malty black tea flavor out of it. It had a little bit of a tannic after taste but it wasn’t bitter. It just kind of tasted like a generic, weak, black tea.

Now, I am not a quitter and I know for a fact that teas can change. I am willing to experiment with this one some more but as of now… Eh. Not much promise.

I got this one aging somewhere.

How long do you plan on aging it?

I may need to get into it in a few months.

Yeah, I dragged this one out again today and really over leafed it to see if I could coax some flavor out of it. After 3 gong fu steeps, I decided that it was again pointless. I frustratingly shoved it to the back of one of my tea cabinets.

I have this in my shou storage. I may have to bring it out this weekend. I actually bought this blind and it wasn’t too pricey so I am not out much if its a terrible one. Tuition tea it could be.
