Just trying this one out in the kyuusu, water at 70C and steeping for two and a half minutes. This is such a lovely, smooth tea, one of my very favourite greens and incrediblly easy to drink – and with that lovely honey scent. It’s worked out very well in the kyuusu, but I think I’ll play around with it a bit more and maybe use just slightly hotter water next time.
The leaves are silvery and possess the distinctive curly shape, and they brew up into a yellow-brown liquid that reminds me a lot of white peony/pai mu tan. The taste also reminds me a lot of a good loose-leaf pai mu tan. The aftertaste gets progressively more bitter as you get to the end of the pot; I found the second steeping a lot more gentle. This is a green tea that will definitely appeal to lovers of white tea.
