I put four heaping teaspoons of the Top Panyang Gold in a twenty-four ounce pot and steeped it for four and a half minutes. As I have worked in the tea tasting room for five years now, I find myself trying new steeping techniques on the various teas. This steeping of the Top Panyang Gold was a bit strong, the four heaping teaspoons in the twenty-four ounce pot may have been an innovative twist on the steep, but steeping it for four and a half minutes may have been thirty seconds too long. The subtleties of dark cocoa and malty honey with a hint of papaya were subdued due to the steep, but it still remains one of our most complex and entertaining teas.
