Last night i got a very thoughtful gift – scale. Now I’m not going to guess how much tea should I put. it will make my tea journey a little easier. ( i want to be a tea nerd, haha)
This tea i had several times and i dont know why i never logged it.
5g 150ml 185F
rinse 10/15/30/30/45/1min etc
this tea is so complex. every steep doesnt look like previous one.
Started with faint fresh peach or apricot, some nuts. the following steeps were more intense introducing muscatel flavors. yes at some point it was like Darjeeling. By fifth steep some citrus notes emerged maybe like lemon myrtle(?)
During my session i never noticed any bitterness, i think its because of short steeps (my fave method of brewing Chinese and Taiwanese teas)
This is not an everyday tea , its a special treat.

Flavors: Grapes, Nuts, Peach

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 0 min, 15 sec 5 g 5 OZ / 150 ML

boychik since only 10% of tea is loose, and you used the words complex, notes, and muscatel in the same paragragh, the scale was note required to become a tea nerd. It is just further proof, its like having a periodic table app on your phone. Wear the label proudly! :)

I’m proud of it ;-)

Second the scale. Especially for puerh. !10 grams of sheng will 20 grams of shou. The main reason I got my scale.

haha, K S is right. be proud in your tea nerdery!

i keep considering getting a scale and not quite biting the bullet. i think eventually i will. i’ll be curious to hear over time whether you think it makes a big difference in your tea experience. and yeah, i think if i decide i really love pu erh (still not sure how that’s going to play out!) it’ll make a lot of sense.

Remember my note abt Haiwan Peacock Quest. I totally overdid it. What about those curly long twisty leaves mainly Taiwanese? They don’t even fit in tablespoon.
