Steeped this western style with maybe 1tsp leaves, 4 minutes in 16oz boiling water.
I’ve been using my newleaf tea set a lot – love a BIG cup of tea. I had been using the bodum tea-for-one but it took forever for black teas to be cool enough to drink and I didn’t like the plastic infuser. I love how this one is glass and metal – no flavor changes from the materials, which I MIGHT have noticed on the bodum one, not sure. You can check out the newleaf set here: http://whisperingpinestea.com/newleafset.html as well as a ton of different teaware in the ‘forlife teaware’ section of the accessories tab.
The tea! It’s pretty delicious, it has the woody-sweet taste I love in dan cong oolongs and also a flavorful body for how light it is. Lightly floral qualities and a hint of smoke perhaps. Very mildly astringent – but it makes me want to keep drinking it all day.
Will be trying in the gaiwan later today.
Have a good morning, all! :)
A nice fragrant, sweet, buttery-citrusy vegetal green tea.
One of my favorite smells in the world, and my favorite green tea.
The dry leaf has a very buttery aroma, and they are TINY!
I prefer to steep all green teas nowadays at 160ºF for 2.5 minutes for the first infusion, so I did that.
The color is medium yellow-green. more of a clear murky yellow when held up to the sunlight.
There’s something about this tea that I just obsess over. I take the smallest sips and just hold it in my mouth for a while before swallowing it. Then I wait till the flavor fades and do it again. It’s awesome – a cup of this lasts me a good 30 minutes.
It’s nice and sweet, definitely some citrus notes – I’d on the lemon side more than orange.
Nutty and smooth – probably chestnut-like but I don’t actually recall what a chestnut tastes like (I know, I’m nut deprived).
Infuses 4-5 times without any issues. Good stuff.
