A second steep for a minute and a half. Still fantastic.

Turned out slightly bitter this time. Water was too hot. However, it plays well with pieces of watermelon :)

First steep prepared in a kyusu with 163 degree F water, steeped for one minute. A fantastic, grassy, sweet aroma, complex, almost savory, vegetal flavor without a hint of bitterness. Sip, pause to contemplate, then swallow.
