Tried this in a banko-yakipot with Kunzan tetsubin.

5g / 200ml
2xwash/15/30/45

Still do not like it. The ripe fruit just isn´t there. Earthy, perhaps a bit of sweet herb? A tiny bit mint?
Think ill dump the rest of the sample in the bin. waste of time when theres so many teas out there thats better.

Preparation
Boiling 0 min, 15 sec

I’ve found that most success is acheived using a gaiwan and the taste really begins to show about the 5th steep onward (sometimes the third). Short steeps adding a few seconds with each round. I only use a pot and long steep when I want to make a puerh latte by adding milk and sugar. (This is particularly good with a shu that’s not overly cedar wood tasting)
