Tonight i was in the mood for raw pu-ehr and The big bang theory :)
I did a comparisonbrewing.
1: 90ml celadon gaiwan
2: 100ml ZiNi yixingpot.

5g / 100C
Quick wash/5s/10s/15s/10s….
15s infusion resulted in heavy astringency, enough to dry the tounge, so I went with 10sec infusions.

Both vessels produced good tea, however the yixing was more mellow with a slightly fuller flavour.

Astringency, slightly earthy with undertones of something.. cant really describe it but a tiny bit sweet and fresh. vegetable or ripe fruit perhaps..

Found it to be quite pleasant!
