Tea Review: Little Moon Cake (Floating Leaves Tea)

Little Moon Cake
Floating Leaves Tea
Type: Puerh
Origin: Not Provided
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a savory aroma of earth, peat moss, and wood.

The dark reddish-brown infusion has a rich and savory aroma with notes of earth, moss, and tree bark.  The taste is rich and almost smooth with notes of earth and wood and just a hint of chocolate with a long finish.

This brewed up equally well prepared western style with a cupping set and gongfu style using more leaf and a smaller brewing vessel.  The liquor became thicker, darker, and richer with the second infusion, then milder while still being quite pleasant with a third infusion.  This tea was not available from Floating Leaves at the time of this review.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
