Starting my tea journey with this brilliant tea. Used glass bottles spring water brought up to small bubbles in kettle then a quick wash of the tea in my 150 ml gaiwan. 1st steep 30 seconds as recommended. Calm, ethereal essence with a light grassy hayness with just a twinge of bitterness. 2ndstp 35 seconds and the tea took on a brighter dimension. 3rd4thstp 35 seconds and wow, #4 was the winner, the mouth-feel was just right not too heavy, but the sweetness of the tea exploded in the aftertaste and lingered for hours. I am impressed and as a beginner in the realm of artisan teas this was a great first experience.
