Was in the mood for a japanese black this morning, so i opened a bag of this little gem :)

6.5g / 200ml glaspot.
three infusions: 45s/1m/2m

First to cups was very powerful with heavy astringency bordering on bitter. The usual JP black flavours was all there. Cinnamon, slight ripe fruit. But with the addition of a flowery flavour.
Next time i will try 5g and see what happens. perhaps even shorten the steepings.

This tea reminds me alot of the Fuji black tea, only its a bit stronger.

Boiling 0 min, 45 sec
