Backlogging. Sunday afternoon.
This is the tea session that began what is turning into a week long Kenchanjangha addition. It’s also really fun to say Kenchanjangha. I also thoroughly enjoy sniffing the dry Kenchanjangha leaves before steeping. They smell like something I can’t quite put my finger on yet so I keep smelling them and trying to figure it out. I got green, toasty, roasty, a bit of sharpness, a very slight bit of smoke, and some peach this time. All three cups were as good as always.
1st steep: 2 min.
2nd steep: 2 min 15 sec.
3rd steep: 3 min.
These steep times work well as a good place to start. This tea does not take a fourth steep.
