I brewed this in a cast iron teapot. When I took the lid off to take the leaves out from steeping I saw the leaves had opened up significantly and were noticeably above the water. So next time I think I’ll brew it in a much more open way than a little strainer like a French press.
This tea surprised me. It’s backward from most other Oolong teas I’ve tried. It was sweet on the front end and on the later it was a woodsy russet floral taste, slightly bitter, yet sweet. It reminds me of the balance of a guava fruit without really tasting like a guava fruit.
After steeping the leaves really smelt grassy, like a Japaneses green.
