Recommend to others: I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, strong shou pu-ehr

Please describe how you are preparing the tea (brew times, water temperature, type of teapot, etc)

I let the water sit for a few minutes after boiling, using a Chinese cup with a lid.


What did you taste on the First Brew?

very nice flavour, a little grass with nuts. Steeped for about 15 seconds


What did you taste on the Second Brew?

Steeped about 10 seconds. Same taste as first brew but more full tasting.


What did you taste on the Third Brew?

same as second brew but smoother with some other flavours I can’t describe but very good. Steeping 12 seconds.


Additional Comments I like this tea a lot. I’m just starting to drink green tea and this is way better than what I get at the supermarket. I feel energized and refreshed after drinking this tea and it leaves a nice taste in my mouth after. I’ll definitely order this tea again.
