4.25 grams in 4.5 oz of water.

First infusion (15s) is mellow and sweet with notes of . . . I don’t know how to describe it. It’s not quite floral and not quite fruit. It’s like Spring earth, waking up after Winter and sending forth new growth.

Second infusion (15s) is slightly bitter with a bit of acorn-nuttyness in the flavor.

Third infusion (15s) has less bitterness, a bit of nuttyness, and an astringent mouth-feel.

I’m not really into raw pu’erhs. Perhaps if I set this in the back of the cabinet for a couple years and leave it alone it will be more to my liking.

Bio

I prefer loose-leaf teas but I do like to keep some tea bags around for travel. I prefer black teas (especially Yunnans), dark oolongs, and pu’erh. My #1 favorite is Jasmine Golden Yunnan from thepuriTea.com.

Most used pots:

12oz blue tetsubin (1.75-2.0 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get a spoon-full of sugar)

10oz green tetsubin (1.55-1.65 grams of leaf. teas steeped in this get less than a spoon-full of sugar)

5oz gaiwan (4.0-4.15 grams of leaf. no sugar)

4oz gaiwan (2.5-3 grams of leaf. no sugar)
