Tea provided by Teavivre for review
Sniffing inside the tea pouch, I’m picking up on charcoal, some sweet scent and raisins.
First through fourth steeps were pretty good. The flavours suggested by the dry leaf scent were accurate. There was also a hint of chocolate in those steeps.
Continuing on for another two, the fifth and sixth steeps were pretty light but enjoyable.
Overall I liked it, but the liquor seemed to be lacking enough depth. Maybe I’m just being picky. Like I said though, it’s still a very enjoyable tea to drink. I’ll prepare this western style the next time I use more of this sample.
100ml gaiwan, 1 sample pouch (5g?), rinse and 6 steeps (as directed on their website: 25s, 40s,60s, 80s, 1m40s, 2m20s)
