Prepped in a ceramic gaiwan that holds 6 oz. Multi-colored leaves, from white to orange/red, to dark brown. Dry leaves have spicey,floral smell. Steeped 2 generous pinches, enough to coat the bottom of the gaiwan for 3 minutes. Leaves are large so a tea scoop would work too. The dark amber brew is sweet, with hints of cinnamon, citrus flavors round out the aftertaste.

Days 3 and 4, Calendar dates 4/16-4/17. Raised temperature of the water to 210 and 215 respectively. Steeped 10 and 12 minutes respectively using the same 12 oz yixing cup. Tea still holds its taste after 4 days, just altering brewing process.

Prepared tea in a yixing infuser cup (12 oz), drank 2 infusions. Looking at the dry leaves you would never think that this green tea, aged but still green tea. The brew is dark and very smooth. Taste is smoky,earthy. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.

Prepared in a small glass teapot. Tea has rich, smoky flavor to the casual sip, followed by a distinct sweet after taste.
