This is one of my favorite black teas. A very clean powerful taste typical of japanese blacks. A bit of sweetness, mint, without any astringency.
Big beutiful leaves with a strong fragrance after wash.
I used 10g of leaves in a 200ml banko-yaki kyusu. The large leaves filled the pot to the brim.
Did 3 infusions.
1. 60sec 100c
2. 45sec 100c
3. 120sec 100c
I got 3 powerful cups. The last infusion was a bit long. I think 5 infusions won`t be a problem. perhaps. 60/45/60/75/90.
A wonderful high quality tea.
