6 tsp (I think) for 1000mL water @100C, steeped five minutes in the Breville, basket cycle on, drunk bare.
Oh oh oh! Peppery, foresty Yunnan! Clean finish, mineral sparkle, and pepper notes that I really like. The leaves are long and spindly, so it’s hard to measure this tea in a scoop. I feel I made it too weak yesterday, but then I always find tea made in a pot versus in a smaller cup seems weaker. That’s just me. This Yunnan tea is a delight. It doesn’t have the honey-like heaviness of some, but it’s got a crisp simplicity (that’s not really a simplicity at all) tI find invigorating. Not a lot of caffeine, either: I can drink this in the evening and not disrupt my sleep. But it does energize, in a more subtle, interesting way. A treat.
