I am in love with this tea. When I brew this in the Yixing I do very quick steeps. You do not want to go more than a minute in my opinion. Each steeping is a glorious brew. Strong and flavorful. It is bold and assertive without being offensive. A tea tea lovers paradise. A beautiful reddish hue with the redwood forest flavor. The first few cups I not only wanted to taste but to admire the aroma. I am thankful I am getting more before its all gone….
