I think I’m getting sick. Any time I tilt my head the slightest bit, the room starts spinning. So I’m either getting sick or have been hitting the bottle quite heavily and forgetting about it. Option two is not as unlikely as one might think as I’m forgetting all sorts of things today. Such as how long I steeped this for. 4 minutes? 5? I don’t recall and the timer went off less than a minute ago.
Anyway, whatever I did to it worked out well. I still thinks this taste like a mild Chinese green. It’s got the honey taste that seems fairly standard but only a tiny little hint of the brine that I seem to always get. I’m drinking it from the same cup as my earlier steeps of Ryokucha, but I rinsed and wiped the cup out good so the sweet, grassy green hints I’m getting are from this tea, not leftover from the Ryokucha.
