This was one of the samples that David kindly gave to me to try. Wow. So far I have done 5 steeps and it gets more complex. I get grape jelly on the first steep and then clove. I might have to stock this in the new year.

Thanks for the sample :)

I always get blueberry jelly with this one, and everyone gives me a funny look! Now I can point to your note and say, “See? BTVSGal understands me, so nyeh.”

How are you steeping this one, by the way? I’ve made it so far in a big pot, gaiwan, and yixing. Still making notes for a real tasting note- very complex.

lol..Yeah I understand.
I did it in a tasting cup…since I broke my gaiwan. It was perfect for it!

Five steeps? Wow – that’s great! In your tasting cup, just curious, how much water does it hold, and how much tea did you put in it? I am ordering this stuff soon, and I wanted to get an idea for how different people prepared it. Thanks!

It is the tasting cup from Adagio. It says on the site that it holds 5oz. I think I did half a tablespoon of tea. It was a sample so I was trying to not use too much since I wanted to give it another go another day.I wrote the tasting note after the second tasting of the tea.
