I decided to use my gaiwan for this BMD. It was my first time using one for white tea so I was beyond eager. After boiling my water, I set the kettle down to cool a bit before warming up my gaiwan and cups. There was also no need to rinse this tea.
The first brew was a rather short one, at about a minute. In my opinion it was definitely the best infusion. This Peony had a soft vegetal taste and lingering sweetness. The liqour came a pale green, as it should. It was exquisite to say the least.
For every successive infusion I added about a minute to the steeping time and kept the temp at about 190 F. I was able to get 5 successful brews from this white tea before I knew its time was up.
I looking forward to drinking this tea again, and I will be trying different brewing methods to see which is best for me. Highly recommend this tea, in particularly for the price! Great everyday white tea.
