i’m very sad because i broken my first yixing pot that i had dedicated to black (laoshan black in particular).
if someone know how to fix it ….
so today i decided to try out this tea,
i don’t like green or green oloong tea but i read so wonderfoul things about this
so i decided to give it a try.

i brewed it occidental style in glass teapot 5 gr for one mug of water
3 min step 95 degree

1 step i recognize immediatly that this is a quality tea… have a strong green taste
sort of vegetables light infuse. this don’t drive me crazy…

2 step better more sweet more buttery less vegetables.i recognize the saffron mentioned
in description. Astringent.

3 step more or less like the 2 a little bit more of astringency

finally this is a good tea absolutely,
i like it more than the other tea of this kind i ever tried.
but…. this is not my type of tea.
this is the reason i don’t wanna rate it.
I fell the complexity but i can’t judge something i don’t understand at all.

BTW i want try it also in gaywan.
gonfu is more “respectful” for this tea, hoping tea pay me back. :)
