2005 6FTM Green Label No.3 raw bingcha



I finally got my TuochaTea.com order today.  I got one cake I've tried before and got eight cakes I haven't tried.  I decided to brew the 2005 Six Famous Tea Mountain "Green Label No.3" raw bing today.

Boiling water, 10s rinse, 12s, 18s, 25s, 35s, 45s, 55s, 65s, 85s, 105s

I immediately get a zesty peach scent off the wet leaves.  I didn't get any camphor off of the lid.  Tasting the tea, I get the peach flavor I tasted and also got a floral springtime flavor.  Sort of floral, perhaps a bit of straw or grass.  I didn't get any astringency off of the first infusion.  Around the second through fourth it appears but very faintly.  I was surprised since this is such a young tea.  The citrus taste was strong in the beginning but fades while the straw taste grows throughout.  I didn't get much earthy taste that most puerh gives.  I believe I used a proper amount of leaves  but the tea was slightly weak.  Maybe next time I'll use more leaf and see if the flavors are more bold.  I won't have to worry about bitterness.
