After all the good things i´ve heard about this tea i thought i´d give it a go.

5g / 90ml Celadon gaiwan.
wash/5s/5s/10s/15s etc @ 100C

First hing i noticed when i opened the bag was a powerful aroma of chocolate and cocoa.
First infusions was full of dark chocolate. later it was more of cocoa with a hint of fruit.

I will have to experiment a bit with this tea. Next try will be westernstyle brewing.

All in all an exceptional tea.

ps. this is the Spring picking. Ds.
