Thank you Amy Oh for your generosity. I am on cup 2 as I am writing. Rishi suggests cooler water for brewing. My first 2 cups were boiling. I brewed in the Yixing for maybe 2 minutes tops. It is a soft, subtle, mellow brew. I worked in the garden all day and I was ready for something nice. I am about to brew cup 3 to their specs. This tea reminds me of a Bai Mu Dan that I had once. This tea is calming. I feel very peaceful. I now know that the lower temperature is the way to go. It is much more flavorful now. Or is it just opening up? A very nice experiance….
