70

1st infusion:

Nutty and deeply flavoured. In fact a bit too nutty/rich for my tastes (I prefer a very fresh tasting green tea). The tea had a lovely honey-sweet scent and the dry leaves smelled just like the earth after summer rain. The smell of the infused leaves was disappointingly “mushroomy” though.

I will make the next infusion cooler (70 deg.) and brew for longer.

Preparation

I’ve been away from Steepster as a while, and for reasons I cannot fathom I also stopped drinking very much tea. That is a error in judgement I am currently rectifying, so I thought my return here was appropriate.
