First infusion at 90C degrees, 1min+ – got almost tie guan yin :)
Next infusions are not so good, too light flavour.

But first infusion is great.

great tea, more mellow, because of organic buds, then http://www.palaisdesthes.co.il/products/shiraore-kuki-hojicha, but it’s better after some steeping knowledge trials. all hibiki-an teas are great. 3 tablespoons for 300ml – 1min or a bit more.

Verdant’s Hand Picked Spring Tieguanyin (2012) is awesome also, I’ve had Teavivre and many others. I rate Verdant 1 and Teavivre 2 but you may feel differently. Good to compare. Usually Verdant has a Spring and Autumn Tie Guan Yin.
