drank Tippy Yunnan by Harney & Sons
352 tasting notes

i ordered few samples with my recent order. i love Yunnan teas. i decided to brew gongfu style
205F 100ml gaiwan 1 TBS
rinse 5/5/7/7/10 seconds etc
wet leaves smell of chestnuts and earth
my first 5 sec produced very potent brew. it is earthy and strong. has some tobacco notes.
2nd steep was a little better. some faint leather notes, tobacco, not much sweetness.
3rd steep i took some leaves out. its incredibly strong and i dont like the taste. i also feel something in my tea even though it went thru very fine mesh strainer i use for puerh.
I think i should stop. its not working today
Maybe i should brew it western style lower temp less leaves and 1 min top

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 0 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 3 OZ / 100 ML

I was surprised be because Yunnan is my fav. TeaPet asked me to try it, she bought 2oz in store. She said it was weird so it’s probably not me, it’s the tea. My main issue fuzz in my mouth. I’m not sure I want to play with the rest of it
